    Ivory-gripped Colt M1851 .36 Caliber Percussion Navy Revolver, #167488 Matching. Manufactured late 1863. Retains about 10% original blue, primarily on the underside of the barrel, and traces of case color on the frame and hammer, the balance a smooth even gray, with just some scattered salt and peppering. Cylinder scene and nipples excellent, very good bore. Mainspring broken, else mechanically fine. The clearly period ivory grips exhibit a nice mellow patina and very sound, with just one minor age crack. A very attractive Civil War period Navy in a scarce configuration.
