EXCEPTIONAL & EXTRAORDINARY CASED FLUTED COLT MODEL 1860 ARMY PERCUSSION REVOLVER WITH MATCHING SHOULDER STOCK. SN 893. Cal. 44. In our opinion, this is the single finest fluted Army Colt Model 1860 in the world. This revolver has 7-1/2" rnd bbl, German silver front sight, 1-line Hartford address, 6-shot full fluted cylinder with serial number in one flute, a 4-screw frame with flat head hammer screw & extended stock screws. Left side of frame has "COLT'S PATENT" in tiny letters. It also has a brass trigger guard & iron back strap with 1-pc oil finish walnut grip. Accompanied by its orig walnut casing with brass corner reinforcements & a blank scalloped rectangular plate in lid. Interior is red velvet lined & compartmented in bottom for revolver, matching numbered oil finished walnut stock with brass yoke & buttplate, a sgl sided, angle spout "COLT'S PATENT" Army sized flask & a 44 caliber iron 2-cavity "COLT'S PATENT" mold with sprue cutter marked "44H" on right side. Left rear compartment contains a sealed tin of Eley's caps & four orig packets of combustible cartridges, all of which are open, two are empty & two remain full. Model 1860 fluted Army revolvers are rare with an estimated total production of only about 4,000 revolvers, a large number of which were shipped to southern distributors just prior to outbreak of the Civil War and thus are considered secondary Confederate arms. These very rare revolvers alone are seldom encountered and almost never with high condition. Matching numbered shoulder stocks are nearly unheard of and a complete cased set is the ultimate in rarity for the Model 1860. This very gun is pictured on p.170 of "Col. Sam Colt Presents" and is suited for the ultimate, most discerning high level Collector or Museum. PROVENANCE: Wadsworth Athenium Coll.,Colt Factory Coll., CT State Lib. Coll., Warren Anderson Collection; Butterfield & Butterfield Lot 4044, March 1992. CONDITION: Revolver is exceptionally fine and virtually as new, all numbered parts are matching with bbl & cylinder retaining 99%+ glossy deep orig factory blue with one small scratch & a couple of small dings on bbl. Cylinder has dried oil in flutes and retains all six crisp safety pins. Rammer & handle retain virtually all of their brilliant case colors as does frame & hammer. Trigger guard has extremely crisp edges with a medium mustard patina. Back strap & butt strap retain virtually all of their glossy orig factory blue with only very faint heel wear from case. Grip is equally new with a few minor nicks & scratches with some slight bruising from stock iron and retains about all of its orig oil finish. Mechanics are crisp, brilliant shiny bore. Case has a small grain check at left rear corner and pry marks around lock with broken lock trunions and the shield shaped escutcheon is missing, otherwise case is sound with minor handling & storage nicks & scratches and retains most of its orig factory varnish. Interior is lightly faded in bottom showing wear from cylinder, front sight & hammer spur. Flask is virtually new retaining about 99% orig finish. Matching numbered stock is also new retaining a fine medium mustard patina on yoke & buttplate with beautiful fire blue on screws, sling stud, ring & lug with wood retaining all of its orig oil finish. Mold is also new & unused. Cap tin paper covering shows wear with some crackling & minor losses but is basically intact. As previously noted two of cartridge packets are open & empty with other two open but remain full. Altogether the single most extraordinary complete set, and believed to be the finest condition set in the world today. 4-35783 (350,000-450,000)
