Colt Model 1849 Percussion Pocket Revolver

.31 caliber, 4" octagonal barrel, S/N 138086 (Ca. 1857).  Visible numbers matching, grip numbers have been glued over, possibly after replacement or repair. Five-shot cylinder with attached loading lever.  Cleaned finish with smooth walnut grips. Barrel marked with two-line New York address, with patent markings on frame.  


Fair. Most of the original finish has been cleaned away with a mixed gunmetal and gray patina. Some small dents and handling marks to grips. Markings have been mostly worn away with minor legibility remaining. Mechanically fine. Bore is good.
