Very good cond overall with some light holster wear. Mechanics and bore are all VG. As stated there is a black dyed holster that is still in very good usable condition. Some of the orig dye from the holster has worn off and gives it that nice aged appearance. Markings on the holster are excellent. Also it comes with an old leather satchel pouch, an R.E.A. remittance envelope and some shipping tags.There is an interesting story about the Railway Express Agency. It was set up by the US Government in 1917. The Government wanted safe shipping specifically for WWI. The Railway Express Agency continued on for years and finally ceased operation in 1975. The Hay days would have been through WWI and WWII where they were very active. During the 50's and 60's other transportation became available. The R.E.A. served much like our UPS today delivering shipments. This outfit would have been protection for those shipments.

C1450 BEAUTIFUL HIGH CONDITION DELUXE FACTORY ENGRAVED LONDON NAVY
Item # C1450
This gun features a very elaborate deluxe relief style engraving on the frame, back part of the bbl lug, muzzle, trigger guard and the bottom of the grip. The Colt patent markings on the side of the frame are done in a flowing banner style. The back shields of the frame have floral motif. Quite striking! Gun also features the typical 1 marking on the bottom of the frame and on the bottom of the grip strap indicating it is a specially produced gun intended for engraving. 42,XXX serial range with all matching numbers. Retains virtually all of the cylinder scene. Dlx grips are quite stunning with virtually all the high gloss piano finish lacquer remaining. There were a number of London model 1851 Navy revolvers in the 42000 serial range that were unsold at the time that the Civil War was developing in this country about 1860-1861. I believe this gun was returned to the US. The reason is because it appears to have some Civil War markings on the bottom of the grip such as "Company D 1862" and on the right heel is scratched " J K 22 MI". Beautifully cased in an English style case featuring the original cleaning rod, nipple tool, loading tool, Colt Navy flask by James Dickson as well as a percussion cap box. The case is lined with red velour and in near excellent condition. Showing only a minimal amount of handling. Gun retains a considerable amount of high gloss polished blue finish on the bbl as well as on the cylinder. The trigger guard is of iron which all the London Navy were made of and retains a considerable amount of silver plate. Traces of case colors on the frame and the engraving is fantastic. One of the fanciest Colts I think I have seen. Excellent plus inside and out. Hard to beat.
Antique $ 29,500.

C1901 UNIQUE COLT POCKET NAVY
Item # C1901
This has been converted to 38 RF cartridge. That is unique in itself but it also has been cut down into a carry gun. The bbl is just a hair over 2" and definitely would have worked well for a hide-out gun! Pretty good cond overall. Nice cylinder scene. Most nickel is present. Some wear and a few rub marks. Grips are also VG. Good action. Some of these cut down Colts look goofy but this one has a real cool appearance to it.

C1940 COLT WELLS FARGO REVOLVER
Item # C1940-27-736
The Wells Fargo was a variation of the 1849 pocket percussion revolver. 5-shot 31 cal. The oddity of the Wells Fargo model was that they were expressly built without a loading lever.

Item # C020
Made without a ram rod. Interesting gun. It appears to have been together forever but there are several different numbers on it. Bbl and frame number are the same. Backstrap is another number and the cylinder yet another. This gun had to have been mis-matched 100 years ago because it looks to be all the same piece. Good traces of blue and case color. Good traces of orig silver on the trigger guard. Correct 3" bbl. Cylinder retains nearly all of the scene. Good sharp little gun.
Antique $ 2,450.
C1643 FACTORY ENGRAVED 1860 COLT ARMY REVOLVER

C1876 COLT 1860 ARMY
Item # C1876
This gun was built in the height of the Civil War in 1863. Nice overall condition with an attractive brown antique patina. Good bbl markings and a VG cylinder scene which is seldom seen on these 1860's. One oddity on this gun is the frame, trigger guard and backstrap are matching numbers. The wedge and cylinder also match but are different than the frame but only by a few numbers. Did Colt do this to get much needed guns into the Civil War effort, or were the parts changed later? Regardless, this is a very attractive Colt.
Antique $ 2,550.
