"COLT FRONTIER SIX SHOOTER SINGLE ACTION ARMY REVOLVER. SN 294117. Cal. 44 WCF (44-40). Blue & case colored with 4-3/4" bbl, slightly altered front sight with 2-line address on top and "COLT FRONTIER SIX SHOOTER" roll marked on left side. Bottom of bbl, under base pin, is a tiny "44". Left side of frame has 2-line patent dates with rampant Colt in a partial circle and it is fitted with matching numbered rampant Colt hard rubber grips. Ejector rod housing is third type with a flat half-moon ejector rod head. This revolver was owned & used by Nabor Pacheco who was the sheriff of Pima County, Tucson, Arizona Territory (Arizona did not become a state until 1912). Sheriff Pacheco served from 1903 to 1908, prior to which he was a police officer in Tucson from 1885 to 1901 when he was elected constable for the Tucson Justice Precinct which position he held until he was elected sheriff. After he left the sheriff's office he became Chief of Police of Tucson and served eight years. Sheriff Pacheco was born July 12, 1863 in Tucson and died in April 1955. Accompanied by a Colt factory letter identifying this revolver as found, with type of stocks not listed, and showing that it was shipped to Albert Steinfeld, Tucson, Arizona on May 15, 1907 in a shipment of six same type revolvers. Sheriff Pacheco then would have carried this Colt for at least a year as sheriff and probably for the eight years he was also Chief of Police of Tucson. Also accompanied by a notarized letter from Raymond Pacheco, dated "8-16-1987" wherein he states that he had sold this revolver to Robert Kahill and that it had belonged to his grandfather, Nabor Pacheco. He states that "This revolver was bequeathed to me at the time of my grandfathers death in April, 1955." He further states that "It has been in my possession until I sold it to Mr. Cahill in August." Also accompanied by copies of a Sheriff's Office document, a couple of photographs, one of which shows Sheriff Pacheco wearing a Colt single action and another of Sheriff Pacheco escorting a man onto the gallows. Also accompanying is a copy of a photograph of Nabor Pacheco dressed in a suit and bow tie. Additionally accompanying is a brief biography of Albert Steinfeld, the gentleman to whom this Colt was shipped, who was a merchant and banker in Tucson at that time.
