    Very Fine Civil War Cooper Second Model Philadelphia .31 Caliber Percussion Double Action Pocket Revolver #6116 Matching. These very well made revolvers were quite popular as private purchase weapons and many examples have been noted in period images, this being an exceptional example. Five shot cylinder, Frankford, Pa. address, last patent date Sept. 22, 1863. Mint bore mechanically perfect. The barrel retains approximately 95% of the original bright blue, the cylinder about 70%. The hammer and loading lever retain most of the original case colors. The frame is smooth and bright, with traces of case colors. Brass straps perfect, grips near mint retaining 98% of the original varnish, just a few small dents at the bottom on the right side, minor. A most impressive example of this popular Civil War revolver.
