3/23/18 - This is a beautifully engraved Colt Model 1851 revolver, chambered in 36 caliber - percussion. It was manufactured in 1866 with 7 3/8 inch octagonal barrel.  The finish is silver with a gold wash over the silver plating.  Most of the gold wash is worn away.  It has Walnut grips and all matching numbers on this gun.  The engraving is a floral scroll and shell pattern style.   While I am not an expert on engraved Colts I have shown this to those who are.  The overall consensus is that the gun is period engraved in a very professional manner but likely not factory engraved.  The mechanics and timing on the cylinder appear very good.   A beautiful presentation piece, that requires no FFL as this is an antique.
