What Is It? / Re: help with i.d. 1860 colt army with xtra line in sn#
« on: June 16, 2018, 10:19:30 AM »
hi.. I'm a big ww2 collector but don't know much about the old stuff....
I saw what I believe to be an 1860 colt army.. I thought it was a civilian model as it does not have cartouche on grips or navy scene on cylinder
however it does have the lugs for stock..
  what is throwing me off is the sn.. it has a second line on all places and its a zero or an o...
for example   22562    22562
                        0           0

in all of the sn# places
  its not bubba added..
is this some conversion variation.. but the gun is still in percussion marked 44 cal

I don't have pix at this time

thanks chad

Pictures would go a long ways in determining what you have. 

This forum is not very well utilized.  You would get more responses on TheHighRoad/index/ or thefiringline/

None of the blue books list the AHF Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine commemoratives. They don't do a good job on the North and South or Blue and Grey 3rd Model Dragoons either - among other noticeable omissions.  I've got Blue Books back to number 3.

Yep, $737 was total.  He threw in the shipping.  I don't think he expected it to go that high.  I only paid $599 for the one I bought in January.  Original issue price was $1995 in 1984.  Dennis' 2nd Gen price guide #6 (2011) valued them at $1150.  Sure wish he'd get an update out.

Happy New Year.  You are correct that I am always buying when it comes to models I haven't got yet - and sometimes duplicates if the price is right.

Were you bidding on the silver plated AHF engraved Navy on Gunbroker?  Ken44-40 is my GB alias. 

Picked this up not too long ago.  Garibaldi Commemorative with all the original packaging and paperwork.  Also included was a Sig series 3rd model dragoon accessory set, Zippo charcoal blue 3rd Model Dragoon lighter, Case 3d Model Dragoon pocket knife and a book about Garibaldi.

2nd Gen Colt 3rd Model Dragoons.  Union is gold plated and Confederate is silver plated.  They came in individual French fitted cases and somewhere along the line they got housed together in a French fit Colt Custon Shop case.

Wow, just Wow!

Lets try another update and see if we can get any conversation  started.

American Historical Foundation had these Dragoon sets made in 1993 from 2nd Generation Colt Blackpowder 3rd Model Dragoons.  Engraved and gold inlayed, each is a one of 50.  The North is in a high polish Blue and the South sports a French Gray finish.

Here is a 1 of 25 gold inlayed, engraved 2nd Generation 1862 Pocket Navy.  The flask and mold are gold plated and the nipple wrench/screwdriver is engraved and gold inlayed.

Colt model 1860 Army with 5 1/2 inch barrel and two cylinders in a French fit book style case without accessories. One cylinder is engraved with Butterfield stagecoach holdup scene while the spare cylinder is engraved with a portrait of Col Butterfield and two Butterfield Overland Despatch freight wagons being pulled by a team of oxen.

Colt Second/Third Generation / F1100 A, US Army Tribute Colt
« on: April 21, 2016, 09:21:54 AM »
One of 100 U.S. Army Tribute Colt Model 1851 Navy from The American Historical Foundation, Richmond, Virginia.  Made in 1984 using an F series 2nd Generation Colt, it was the first of "The American Military Colt Collection", that consisted of Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine tribute revolvers.  This Army Tribute is fully engraved with military themed designs.  The barrel, loading lever, frame, cylinder trigger guard and back strap are all gold plated; while the screws, wedge, trigger, and nipples are blued; and, the hammer is case hardened.

Number 50 of 250 matched pair with all original packing material.  Pieces have only been put in the case 3 times for pictures to be taken.  Flask is still in sealed plastic bag.
