Colt Single-action Army Revolver, c. 1884, serial number 107635, .45 caliber, walnut grips, marked on the left side of the frame "PAT. SEPT. 19. 1871./JULY 2-72./JAN. 19.-75.," the top of the barrel "COLT'S PT. F.A. MFG. Co. HARTFORD, CT. U.S.A.," with Colt factory paper, barrel lg. 7 1/2, overall lg. 13 in.

Provenance: The collection of David F. Post.
Estimate $3,000-5,000

Barrel is a light plum color with no remaining finish on the frame and cylinder. Grips have a few dings and nicks and the left grip has a 3" crack. The bore has some light pits but the rifling is still fairly strong and the gun functions properly.
