COLT POCKET MODEL FLASK WITH MUCH ORIGINAL FINISH

$450.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 30-2157

This flask for a Colt pocket model has lots of original finish and lacquer on the copper and brass, and the spring shows lots of original blue as well. The American eagle with shield, arrows and olive branch, under thirteen stars and with the rays of the rising sun behind it will be familiar from other Colt flasks, as will the crossed revolvers underneath. A curving ribbon reading “E PLURIBUS UNUM” follows the bottom curve of the flask. Both sides show some fine scratches from use to the lacquer at the neck, but only a few very small rub spots that show any mellow copper. One side has some glue residue from a label that will clean. The Colt .49 pocket was Colt’s percussion best seller and this flask would display very nicely with one of the better examples.  [sr]
