ROGERS & SPENCER PERCUSSION REVOLVER. Cal. 44. SN 4690. Blue finish with 7-1/2 oct bbl, silver cone front sight with 2-pc smooth walnut grips with flared butt. It has markings in usual places with crisp cartouche on left grip and inspector initials on various parts. About 5,800 of these revolvers were made in the period 1863-1865 and deliveries were not made until too late to see Civil War service. They mostly were never issued and in 1901 Bannermans acquired 5,000 of them from the government which accounts for so many of them remaining in extremely fine condition. CONDITION: Extremely fine. As new, appears to be unfired. Retains virtually all of its bright, orig blue with three small spots of rust on bbl and a couple spots of flaking on cyl and a light cyl line. Case colors on rammer handle & hammer are dark. Grips are lightly chipped around edges and retain most of their orig finish. Mechanics are crisp, brilliant shiny bore. 4-30357 JR213 (3,500-4,500)
