Accompanied by Colt letter of Authentication dated January 8, 1998 certifying that firearm # 72052 was one of a shipment of 15 Colts sent to “Schoverling, Daily & Gales, New York, New York, September 16, 1881.”

Handsome .45 caliber six shooter, famously known as “The Peacemaker”, with standard Colt barrel address and three-line patent date markings (1871, ’72 and ’75), and matching serial numbers. Solid nickel finish, with the barrel exhibiting a clean, consistent patina, with traces of minor pitting. Walnut grips display small dings consistent with age and usage. Crisp cylinder indexing, sharp action. Bore slightly dusty. Else VG. As for historical context, this 1881 Colt is contemporary with Doc Holiday & “Tombstone” and the Lincoln County (NM) War between Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid. Not forgetting Cochise and army action on the early 1880s Apache frontier. Solidly a collectible.  [jp]
