COLT COMBINATION TOOL FROM THE MOLLUS WAR LIBRARY AND MUSEUM

$295.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1052-22

This Colt tool combines a screwdriver and nipple wrench for disassembling and cleaning a revolver. The surface is smooth metal and shows good amount of original thin blue color. One side has a museum inventory number in ink on white base (typically white-out.) This was in the collections of the War Library and Museum of the Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the U.S. in Philadelphia until recently. That organization was formed by veteran Union officers in 1865 and reached its height with about 8,000 members in 1900. Their library and museum was incorporated in 1888 and from 1922 was housed in a townhouse in Philadelphia. It closed in 2008. Much of its material was placed with other museums, and we were able to purhase some of the remainder recently at auction.

This is an essential tool to go with a Colt revolver and has an interesting provenance to a well-known collection. Please see our other listings for more material from this same group.  [sr]
