This pocket Colt has a 5.00 inch octagon barrel and six shot cylinder that retains 90% of the cylinder scene. The serial number on all parts match. The number is 278685 showing that the revolver was manufactured in early 1865.

Approx. 60% of the original bluing remains on the barrel. Mostly on the underside and around the wedge. The top of the barrel is marked “ADDRESS COL. SAML COLT NEW-YORK US AMERICA.” Stamping is strong and very readable. The frame, hammer and loading leaver show small amounts case colors. Frame is marked “COLT’S PATENT” on left side. Trigger-guard and grip frame show all brass with “31 CAL” on left side of guard. Wood grips are of varnished walnut and show some light wear. The cylinder has some wear on stops but indexes properly. Hammer holds at half and full cock. No play in cylinder at full cock. Hammer falls properly when trigger is squeezed. All screw heads are good and show little wear. One frame screw appears to have been shortened but this does not affect anything.

This item is from the collection of the well-known Lee’s Headquarters Museum and is listed in a museum inventory that dates from the 1930’s or 40’s. The museum opened in the 1920’s and closed its doors in late 2014.  It stood on US Route 30 just west of Gettysburg.

With the item is a hard plastic museum sign that reads “1848 COLT POCKET MODEL / .31 CALIBER REVOLVER.” Unfortunately the Model date on the sign is wrong.
