"COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY REVOLVER. SN 317163. Cal. 45 Colt. Usual configuration and a great rarity. This revolver has a 4-3/4" bbl, full front sight, 2-line address on top & caliber marking on left side. Left side of frame has 2-line patent dates and a rampant Colt in a circle. Left side of trigger guard has the "VP" proof in a triangle on front web and a small "W" on rear web. Fitted with extremely beautiful pearl grips that fit precisely and were undoubtedly installed by the H&D Folsom Company before they resold it. Accompanied by a Colt factory letter identifying this revolver with 4-3/4" bbl, "silver/gold" finish with type of stocks not listed. Shipped March 28, 1911 to the H&D Folsom Arms Co., New York, NY in a shipment of five same type revolvers. A 4-page article in the Winter 2007 edition of The Rampant Colt. pp 45-48 by Corky Ullom, deals with gold inlaid and gold plated single actions. On page 48 he lists the number of the non-engraved, all gold revolver as only three, with two being single action Armys and one Besley. If these figures are correct, and one must consider his detailed work and figures as accurate, then our Colt is a very rare item indeed, even thought iis finish is restored. It originally left the factory as gold over silver. CONDITION: Very fine, all matching with the last three digits of serial number on back edge of cylinder.  Overall retains 96-97% strong gold finish which was applied over silver plating.  Althought this is a restored finish it has all the earmarks of a factory finish as there are no ripples in surface observed anywhere with all the markings preserved even though they are slightly thinned in some areas.  Grips, as noted, fit extremely well and retain about all of their orig polish with great fire and some color.  Mechanics are crisp, bright shiny bore with a very few scattered spots of discoloration.  Gold finished Colts are one of the great rarities in Colt collecting. 4-32081 JR206 (12,500-17,500)"
