Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #92402, .44 cal, 8'' round barrel with a fair-good bore showing moderate oxidation and some strong rifling throughout. The metal surfaces of this revolver are mostly a mottled gray patina showing scattered patches of light pitting and small dings. The naval engagement scene on the cylinder is still mostly visible, the New York barrel address and patent marks also clearly legible. The trigger shows some fire blue and the brass triggerguard is a medium goldenrod patina perhaps showing a light cleaning long ago. The smooth one-piece walnut grip remains in very good condition showing mostly worn finish, a few small dings and darkening from the years. The ink number on the interior is no longer legible but the grip still shows soft but clearly visible cartouches on both sides. All of the serialized parts are matching including the wedge and the action functions crisply with excellent timing and lockup. This 1863-made revolver has a lot of character and no doubt saw Union service during the Civil War. (138817-8) {ANTIQUE} (1800/2200) Sold For 2070.00
