Item No.: 10401 Price : SOLD
Description :
This is the Colt United States Cavalry Commemorative Cased Set, 1777-1977, celebrating 200 years of US Cavalry. Issued in 1977, it consisted of two Colt U.S. Model 1860 percussion revolvers, a shoulder stock, powder flask, bullet mould, nipple wrench, and an Eley cap tin packaged in a blue lined presentation case. These are Colt 2nd Generation black powder revolvers with no signature on the back strap. This is an early set, only the fourth set produced. These revolvers have the serial number US0004 and 0004US. This set was presented to an executive at Morgan Stanley & Company, Incorporated and Colt Holdings. The original brass plaque on the top of the box was moved to the interior and a new presentation plaque was fastened to the top of the lid. The set is in very fine condition overall. The revolvers have never been fired, but they have been handled. They retain nearly 100% of their factory blued and case-colored finishes. The bores and mechanics are excellent. The grips have a few small nicks and dents, undoubtedly from someone trying to affix the stock. The stock is in excellent condition with one tiny ding in the wood on the left side. The accessories are all in excellent condition. The presentation case has some condition issues. As stated, the original plaque has been moved. Some of the partitions are loose and one short section is missing. This piece is from the small square compartment where the cap tin should go. There appear to be some fly specks on the lid. There is some tape on the corners for no reason that I can see. I have always loved this set and this one has the lowest serial number I have seen. Stock no. 23709
