serial #18701, .36 cal, 5 1/2'' round barrel with a fair-good bore showing moderate pitting and good rifling throughout. The barrel and cylinder retain about 20% original bright blue mostly in the protected areas with the balance toned to a pleasant medium gray-brown patina showing some dings around the wedge. The hammer and loading lever show strong remnants of case-hardened colors while the frame has toned to gray patina. The New York barrel address and patent markings on the frame and cylinder are all still quite crisp and clear. The triggerguard and backstrap are mostly a pleasant light ocher patina. The smooth one-piece walnut grip is ink-numbered to the gun and remains in near excellent condition retaining almost all of its original finish with just some high edge wear and a few small dings, also the name ''E. EVANS'' is penciled onto the frontstrap inlet. The revolver is all matching except for the wedge numbered ''18194'' and interestingly there is a ''0'' stamped below the serial number on the frame, triggerguard and backstrap, perhaps done to address a serial numbering mistake at the factory. The action seems to function well with solid timing and lockup. A handsome revolver made in 1863. (138817-26) {ANTIQUE} (1800/2200) Sold For 1610.00
