COLT MODEL 1860 44 CALIBER ARMY REVOLVER, Manufactured in 1862 
A very nice example of this popular weapon, serial number 81693, all matching except the wedge.  The 8" barrel has the single line "Address Col Saml Colt New-York US America" marking and the cylinder has much of
its original cylinder scene.  The original one piece grips are cartouched on both sides, with one side being a bit stronger than the other.  All metal has a pleasing, smooth brown patina
. The wedge retention screw is a replacement, but everything else appears to be original (excepting the wedge itself, as already mentioned) and the gun has a great "used, but not abused" look.  The bore is good, with plenty of rifling left.  This one was made in 1862 and could have witnessed many of the most crucial battles of the war.... if only they could talk!
