    COLT M1851 MARTIALLY MARKED .36 CALIBER PERCUSSION NAVY REVOLVER. Serial #71576 all matching including wedge (cylinder number not visible). New York City address. Overall, a nice honest representative example of a martially marked M1851 navy.

    All metal with deep dark smooth untouched patina. Mechanically perfect, fair bore. Correct original US mark on frame, cylinder worn/ aged with scene and number no longer visible but unquestionably original and correct. Wedge screw an old replacement, otherwise the gun is entirely correct and original. Brass straps with nice untouched patina and correct inspectors' initials. Grips with deep dark patina and traces of original varnish. Some dents on the bottom but overall very nice untouched condition commensurate with the rest of the gun. Inspector's cartouches no longer visible.
