    Colt SAA Revolver, .45 Caliber # 71964, Matching, Mfg 1881. Original 7 1/2" barrel. Factory letter states the gun was shipped on October 29, 1881 as part of a shipment of 15 similar guns, to H. & D. Folsom Arms Co. New York, N. Y. The finish is listed as nickel while the barrel length and type of stocks are unrecorded. The gun retains 40% of the original nickel finish, the balance smooth and gray with absolutely no rust or pitting. Mechanically perfect, excellent bore, crisp markings including 3 line patent markings on left side of frame and 45 CAL on left side of trigger guard. Colt medallion ivory grips obviously a later addition but fit nicely with very nice mellow age patina and hairline surface age cracks on the bottom. A fine and very appealing 7 1/2" black powder single action.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
