This is a very nice 5 inch colt pocket revolver. It's very early, and in the 34,000 serial number range. It shows an overall gray patina and has an almost complete absence of original finish other than a trace of blue under the barrel. The nice part about it is it's very crisp with almost all of its cylinder sscene, 98% original silver plate on the back strap and trigger guard and 98% original varnish on fine, full grips. The cylinder has a score mark around it that's actually very slight where someone screwed the wrong screw into the front of the trigger guard and it protruded out the top of the frame. As the cylinder was rotated, it left a line where the screw scratched the cylinder. The timing was also off on this gun at one time and the result are the visible score marks from the hammer scraping the back shoulders of the cylinder. With a little TLC this could be a very presentable gun. It's the type I wouldn't mind having in my own collection if it had some history to accompany it. I like sharp crisp guns that look like they were used, not guns that look like they sat in a drawer.
