Looking for the realized and estimated price?

Description: serial #129032, .44 cal., 8" round barrel with a bright excellent bore. This is a spectacular revolver. The barrel retains 90% original blue finish with areas of thinning blending with a pleasing smooth brown patina. Polish marks around front sight and loading lever catch remain crisp. The cylinder retains 80% original blue with loss due to even flaking and with cylinder scene remaining crisp. The frame and hammer retain 95% strong original color case-hardened finish which remains quite vibrant. The one piece walnut grip rates excellent with 95% original oil finish remaining and with strong cartouche on either side. The backstrap retains about 70% evenly thinning original blue finish which is blending with a pleasing smooth brown patina. The triggerguard retains a pleasing mellow patina. All screw heads are crisp and clean. This is truly an investment grade, top shelf Colt Army worthy of the finest American martial arms collection. (15398-1) {ANTIQUE}
