serial #331360, 32 WCF, 4 3/4? barrel with an about very good bore which shows evident rifling but with pitting its full-length. The barrel, ejector rod and cylinder are all a plum brown and gray patina with some generous trace blue within the flutes. They exhibit the expected minor handling dings that come from the years with some minor oxidation and light pitting present on the cylinder; the left side of the barrel shows a prominent rub mark or 1 1/2? long ding or abrasion just below the caliber marking. The frame is a mottled smoky mix of silvery case-hardening, dull gunmetal gray and a soft brown patina showing some trace colors. The hammer is similar and the straps have toned to a pewter and brown. Revolver wears a pair of checkered hard rubber Rampant Colt grips that rate good and are worn nearly smooth, they are un-numbered on the interior with the left grip being marked ?4/22/1916? with the name ?JF Luhan? scratched on their interior. It would appear immediately as though there was a JF Luhan who was a doctor in New York and had a treatise published in the American Medical Journal in 1906, he was born around 1867 and died in 1931. Further research may prove or disprove this as the owner of this revolver. The ejector rod head is a replacement and the gun seems to function properly mechanically. (38737-30) {C&R} [Dr. Louis C. March Jr. Collection] (2000/3000) SOLD FOR $1,840.00
