Here is the only known cased pair of Colt M1851 Navy Revolvers with the matching shoulder stock. Serial numbers are 88066 and 88067. They are deluxe engraved and the lid of the case as well as the backstraps of the revolvers are marked J.S.M who I dont know who is for sure. Barrels are 7-1/2 in length and caliber .36

I find it interesting that two bullet molds are included in the casing.  I thought it was standard to include one.  Than again, in cased sets, nothing is standard.

Beautiful set though. Look at that grain on the grips and stock

Most of the doubled cased percussion Colts will have two bullet molds.  Other makers' doubled cased outfits will occasionally have a pair of molds although not quite as often seen.

I know this is an old post, however, I want to say what a gorgeous set of firearms...

They are nice but I thought I saw an English cased set in a book the other day with a shoulder stock so that would make a second set? I need to look for the picture again

There is an English cased version of a single Colt Model 1851 Navy that is engraved with a stock but it is English and only one revolver.  It was in a Bonham's sale last year but its picture can be fairly easily found on Google images.  I am sure that way back then there were probably more than one set of double cased and stocked Navy revolvers produced, but apparently, this set is the only one that has survived to this day.
