Sold by James D. Julia auctions on March 2008 for : $4,600.00

"COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY REVOLVER WITH PALL MALL ADDRESS. SN 141661. Cal. 450 Eley. Very rare single action with only 1,505 built in this configuration with 7-1/2" bbl, of which only 1,255 had the 2-1/2" long address as found on this revolver. Production records, as contained in the book Colt Peacemaker British Model, Cochran, indicate this revolver was made in 1891. It has 7-1/2" bbl, full front sight with 2-1/2" Pall Mall address on top with caliber marking on left side of bbl. It has 2-line patent dates and rampant Colt in a circle on left side of frame and is fitted with rampant Colt hard rubber grips that are unnumbered but fit extremely well. Inside the left grip has crudely carved initials "WTF". Right side of frame is stamped with Canadian military markings consisting of "1D" broad arrow facing up and "D10". This exact revolver is listed & the marking is pictured on p. 144 of the above cited book. The information regarding this revolver appears to have been supplied by noted Colt single action authority, Ron Graham, which states that this revolver was "in a shipment of six to S. Hoffnung, 116 Broad St., New York City, June 30, 1891 from where they were probably exported to Canada". The marking is for Number 1 District Depot 1910 and the broad arrow shows government purchase making this, indeed, an extremely rare single action which also explains the lack of British proofs on a Pall Mall marked revolver. Chambers of cylinder remain in 450 Eley and have not been opened up to 45 Colt. CONDITION: Very good to fine.  No orig finish remains being a cleaned & polished medium gray patina, apparently having been cleaned a long time ago and has now acquired a light patina.  Grips are sound showing moderate wear with a couple of scrapes.  Hammer is not solid in half cock notch, otherwise mechanics are fine, strong bright bore with moderate pitting. 4-33888 JR324 (3,000-5,000)"
