Factory Engraved Colt Model 1861 Percussion Revolver

.36 caliber, 7.5" barrel, S/N 6440E. "E" stands for engraving. Single-line barrel address, Colt’s patent markings in script on a banner on the left side of the frame. Brass backstrap and triggerguard. Original one-piece ivory grips. Scrolls are standard factory-style engraving. 


All metal is gray to brown patina.  Some light pitting mixing in. Not much cylinder scene left. Very nice mellow ivory grips. One corner of the backstrap near the frame has an old repair.  Overall a good example of a factory engraved Colt.

Estimate: $2,500 - $5,000
