RARE EARLY TRANSITIONAL MODEL SQUAREBACK 1851 NAVY REVOLVER.

SN 923. Cal. 36. This is a scarce example of an early 3-digit Colt Percussion Navy revolver made in 1851, which theoretically by SN should be in 1st Model range, however this is a correct pure 2nd Model with 1-line New York address. PROVENANCE: The Estate of G. W. “Bill” Stewart of Sonora, Texas. CONDITION: Good to very good overall condition with traces of original finish remaining. Serial numbers are all matching except cylinder which is numbered #823 rather than #923 (however we feel this is a factory error). Mechanically gun is functional with discernible rifling in bore. 49973-496 JS (5,000-7,000) – Lot 2254
