    Scroll Engraved Colt SAA Believed to be the Work of Master Engraver Denise Therion #142904, Mfg. 1891. 4 3/4" barrel, .45 caliber, retaining 100% of the nickel finish and appears to be unfired. Mechanically perfect and excellent bore with fine crisp markings including two line patent date and "Colt Frontier Six Shooter". Full engraved coverage with tight crisp scrolls with some geometric touches at the back of the cylinder, top of the backstrap, and top of the ejector rod housing. All engraved portions with punch dot background. Wonderful ivory grips with rich mellow patina, the right side with a deeply relief carved steerhead. In addition to the appealing patina the grips show nice smooth even wear. A beautiful gun, of exquisite quality in pristine condition, attributed to one of the most desirable of the Colt master engravers.

    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.
