    COLT SINGLE ACTION REVOLVER - Serial number 144501, circa 1892. 4 ¾" barrel in .45 cailbre. All factory applied stampings and configuration are standard for this model. Fitted with very attractive pair of pearl grips. Functioning action.

    Condition:It appears the twenty percent of the finish remaining on this revolver is silver. The overall wear on the revolver does not allow for an accurate assessment relative to the finish applied by the factory in the absence of a factory letter. A little rounding of the frame metal around the screw holes and at the juncture of the frame where the straps are attached hints at possible refinishing, albeit a long time ago. Majority of metal finish where no plating remains is quite dark for the most part, with relatively minor pitting. Pearl grips fit the straps extremely well and show good age. There is one chip out of the left grip at the rear of the backstrap.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
