    COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY WITH "STEER HEAD" GRIPS - Serial number 171896, circa 1897. 7 ½" barrel in .32 W.C.F calibre. Nickel finish with mother of pearl carved with steer head grips. All serial numbers match. Markings and features are standard for this model and original. Accompanying this lot is a leather belt with holster rig.

    Condition: About fifteen percent of what appears to be the original nickel plating remains, mainly on the backstrap and under the barrel. The carved steer head grips are old and attractive on the revolver. A few minor chips are evident on the right grip with hand engraved initials F.M.R. or T.M.R. on the butt of the backstrap after the period of use of the revolver. The Belt and holster with this revolver show some age but are not nearly as old as the revolver. They are both supple but the holster is trimmed.
