Remington New Model Army Revolver

"REMINGTON NEW MODEL ARMY PERCUSSION REVOLVER. SN 93297. Cal. 44. Usual configuration with 8" oct bbl, normal 3-line markings with pinch post front sight & grooved topstrap rear sight. It has brass trigger guard and 2-pc walnut grips with crisp cartouche on left side with matching pencil number inside. There are small inspector initials on various parts. These revolvers were well received and heavily used during Civil War and afterward in Indian Wars by a variety of cavalry units. After they became obsolete they were then sold privately and their use continued on frontier. Rarely are they ever found in unused condition. PROVENANCE: Glenn Marsh Collection. CONDITION: Extremely fine plus.  Appears to be new & unfired retaining almost all of its fine glossy orig factory blue with a few scattered flaked spots that have turned to light patina.  Hammer retains about all of its bright orig case colors and trigger guard is a medium to dark brass patina.  Grips are crisp with a couple of minor chips and retain virtually all of their orig factory finish.  Mechanics are crisp, brilliant shiny bore
