Remington New Model Army Revolver

"REMINGTON NEW MODEL ARMY PERCUSSION REVOLVER. SN 81821. Cal. 44. Usual configuration with 8" oct bbl, pinched post front sight with normal bbl markings & a strange plug on top flat at frame. It has brass trigger guard and 2-pc walnut grips that are beautifully carved with diamond patterns and a star around left escutcheon. Grips have small silver pins in some diamonds and points of the star. Several of the parts have inspector initials. PROVENANCE: Glenn Marsh Collection. CONDITION: Good to very good.  Traces of orig finish remain in sheltered areas, being mostly a light to medium blue/brown patina.  Front sight has been slightly altered and rammer latch stud may be an old replacement.  Right grip has a pressure crack inside, otherwise they are fine and retain a dark hand worn patina.  Mechanics are fine, bright shiny bore with a few scattered spots of light pitting
