EXTREMELY RARE FIRST MODEL FIRST PRODUCTION WINCHESTER MODEL 1873 SADDLE RING CARBINE.

SN 153. Cal 44 WCF (44-40). Standard grade carbine with 20″ bbl, full magazine, integral front band/front sight that has been altered. Rear sight is 1866 style, 2-position flip sight that has had its 500 yd aperture broken off. Receiver is 1st type with mortised raised thumbprint first type dust cover. Mounted with uncheckered straight grain American walnut with straight stock & carbine buttplate with trap. The bbl & carrier are not caliber marked which is standard for these early ’73s. The top tang is also unmarked which is standard. The bottom tang, between the lever latch & tang screw is engraved “Model 1873 / 153”. Early 1873s were so marked until about serial number 350. Early 1873s were fitted with left over 1866 bbls which had rifling that would not stabilize the new more powerful 44-40 bullets. Apparently Winchester received a lot of complaints and redesigned the bbl rifling for better bullet stability. Many of the early ’73s were returned to be re-barreled. It appears that this bbl may be one of those early replacements. Th rifling is 5 lands & grooves and is very deep. CONDITION: Good. Bbl & magazine tube retain a cleaned silver/brown patina. Receiver & side plates retain 25-30% orig blue, mostly on the side plates with blue turning brown around the staple on the left side. Lever, hammer & buttplate are a silver/brown patina.

Tang is marked “Model 1892 Winchester” with trademark information below. CONDITION: Very fine overall as refinished. Retains most all blue finish on 16″ bbl with magazine finish slightly thinning. Receiver retains much of its later applied finish that is starting to turn indicating that the finish work was done many years prior. Walnut crescent buttstock has been lightly sanded and is evident at confluence of wrist and receiver with very slight rounding of wood at top of crescent buttplate. Applied finish is exceptional and could easily be mistaken for factory. Hidden and almost indiscernible is a stamped property mark or cartouche in left side of butt that is not legible enough to be identified and further investigation could prove fruitful. The appropriate 7-1/2″ short rifle/trapper carbine length forearm had been lightly refinished with great attention as to not remove too much material or rnd edges. Slight bruising and distress is evident at forward left side and rear right side of which the application of a more contemporary finish has been applied and covered up. Bore is bright and sharp. Mechanics are crisp and tight. A wonderful little special order 1892 trapper length short rifle. Although refinished is an extreme rarity and should be appreciated. 51590-14 (3,000-5,000) C&R – Lot 2061

IMPORTANT COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY REVOLVER FROM PACIFIC MAIL STEAMSHIP COMPANY.

SN 175937. Cal. 45. 7-1/2″ bbl. Blue and case colored finish with “PM SS Co.” marking on left side of bbl. 2-pc hard rubber snake and eagle grips. Manufactured 1898. Shipped February 5, 1898 to Colt’s Patent Fire-Arms Mfg. Company, San Francisco Agency, San Francisco, California in a 25 gun shipment. This is the only known example of a Pacific Mail Steamship Company marked Colt Single Action Army. Pictured on p. 288 of the Colt Peacemaker Encyclopedia by Keith Cochran and pictured as well on p. 3 of Jerry R. Hemphill’s book, Colts From Texas and The Old West, and is attributed to the Collection of Gary Helin. Accompanying this revolver is a copy of a notarized affidavit from the family of Mr. Elleck Lonnie Angles who was issued and carried this revolver during his duties as a mail room guard on various vessels operated by the Pacific Mail Steamship Company during the years 1907 through 1915. A historically important Colt revolver that’s ownership can be tracked for over 100 years. CONDITION: Very fine overall, with most finish having turned a more pleasant patina. The Pacific Coast Steamship Co., existing from the late 1850’s to the early 1930’s, was an iconic west coast transporter of treasury and martial goods with routes from Panama to San Francisco with a fleet of over 13 steamers. Pacific Mail Steamship Company delivered from the East some of the very first gold seekers from 1849 to San Francisco. Later, in 1867, they began regular service between San Francisco and Hong Kong. Accompanying this revolver is a copy of a Colt factory letter, and copies of affidavit and confirmation of previous owners by receipt. A spectacularly rare and desirable item of Western Americana. 51422-6 (7,500-10,000) – Lot 2145

INTERESTING PERIOD INSCRIBED COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY REVOLVER WITH HOLSTER AND CASE.

SN 163823. Cal. 45. COLT Blue and color case hardened with 4-3/4″ bbl, very slightly altered front sight that has been re-attached and 2-line address. Left side of frame has 2-line 3 patent dates and Rampant Colt in circle. Mounted with fine 2-pc pearl grips with raised carved ox head with red eyes on right side, missing its right eye stone. Buttstrap is engraved in period block letters “J B FOX”. Right side of front and back straps, under the grip, are stamped with a small 6-point star. Rear face of cyl, bottom of bbl and inside ejector housing are also marked with the same star and assembly number “823”. All this indicates that this revolver was refinished at the factory. The hammer is a modern replacement that has had a small block welded near the bottom pivot which strikes on the top of the backstrap and will not permit the hammer to go to full cock indicating someone created a “fanner”. By holding the trigger and manipulating the hammer with the heel of the free hand the revolver could be fired very rapidly. Accompanied by a late 19th/early 20th Century mail order holster with sewn toe and impressed decorations. Holster has a belt loop on back attached with harness rivets. Accompanied by a reworked walnut silverware box with empty plaque on lid. It has green velvet lining and is compartmented in the bottom for the revolver and three other compartments, one of which contains a full, sealed packet of 12 Frankford Arsenal Cartridges bearing the date 1878. The front of the case has a cartridge block containing two 44 cal Henry Rimfire cartridges & six 44 short rimfire cartridges with seven additional empty holes. Inside the lid has a copied Colt advertisement. Accompanied by a packet of information entitled “Jubilee B. Fox / Confederate Soldier and Texan”. Fox was enlisted in the 28th Tenn Infantry and fought for the Confederacy. After the war he migrated to Texas where he died in 1924. The owner of this revolver was very likely a law enforcement officer or cattleman who later in life had it restored, probably during the period of use. A Colt Factory letter may provide additional information on who J.B. Fox was. CONDITION: Very good. Bbl retains traces of factory blue and ejector housing about 50% blue in the gullets. Frame retains faded case colors in the front gullets with smoky colors on the hammer and frame, being mostly a gray metal patina. Grip frame is a gray metal patina, as is the cyl. Grips have small chips near the frame, otherwise are sound, showing great fire. Mechanics as noted above are fine. Strong bore with good shine and fine pitting. Holster shows moderate to heavy wear and is sound, retaining strong orig brown finish. Box has a crack in lid, otherwise is fine. Cartridges are fine. 51787-6 (6,000-10,000) – Lot 2146
