SN 486. Cal. .34. Rare Paterson with 3-1/16″ oct bbl, German silver front sight and 1-line “Patent Arms M’g Co Paterson N-J Colt’s Pt” address with small bow ties at each end. Cyl has five chambers with the centaur scene roll marking. Grip frame is straight style with 1-pc nicely figured walnut grip. SN 486 was observed on rear face of bbl lug, rear face of cyl, rotating ring, trigger, bottom of grip. According to various publications there were about 850 Belt Model Paterson revolvers produced 1837-1840 with those SNs shared by both the No. 2 and No. 3 revolvers. Any Paterson is a collector’s prize. They have been valuable since before, during and after the Great Depression, even in the 1950s they sold for hundreds of dollars. The short bbl #2 Belt apart from its rarity is a more than acceptable specimen. CONDITION: Gun retains much of what appears to be much of an old refinish, possibly factory. Bbl markings are still clear and cyl scene is fully visible and excellent for a Paterson. Figured walnut grips retain considerable traces of factory varnish. Wedge is numbered 94 although is an orig Paterson part. Bore is very good and will clean better. Mechanics are excellent. 53084-1 (30,000-50,000) – Lot 1393
