This is a fine condition Navy Revolver that shows about 60% original blue on the barrel and about 40% case colors on the remaining parts. Traces of silver adorn the straps and the grips show 90% original varnish. If has a fantastic inscription and the gun was presented to Lieutenant James McConnell of the 82nd Ohio Volunteers in December of 1861 by the Regimental Surgeon. The 82nd had a great history of action and valor throughout the Civil War with their Zenith being at Gettysburg where they lost more officers in killed and wounded than any other Ohio Regiment. McConnell, a Captain at the time was wounded at Gettysburg. This is great history here and a fine condition gun, a hard to beat combination.
