    Very Fine M1849 Colt .31 Caliber Pocket Model, #189862. Most unusual example with the cylinder bearing the number 202747 in the panel but followed by the number of the rest of the gun, 189862, which also appears to be a period marking. Exceptionally sharp crisp gun retaining 80%+ of the original bright blue and case colors. Cylinder scene about perfect. Sharp crisp tight action. Excellent bore. Brass straps retain about 20% of the original silver. 6 shot, one line New York address, 4" barrel. Grips retain about 98% of the original varnish with just a few dents on the bottom of the right side, minor. All screws and nipples perfect. A very attractive and anomalous Colt pocket.
