Colt 1862 Police Revolvers with factory engraving are extremely rare. This is a fine little gun that retains about 25 - 30% aged blue on its 6 1/2" barrel and generous amounts in the cylinder flutes. Traces of fading but some areas of sparse vividness adorn the frame, lever and hammer. It is engraved in the late-vine scroll, and has gorgeous factory ivories. Very crisp markings, edges and action showing very little use. A very premium looking gun thats color blends perfectly and making it appear to be much more highly finished.!
