LEECH AND RIGDON REVOLVER. SN 634. A fine specimen of this rare Confederate revolver made by Thomas Leech and Charles H. Rigdon in Greensboro, GA. The revolver, serial number 634, generally follows the patter of the Colt Model 1851 Navy being .36 caliber with a 6-shot cylinder, 7 ½” part round, part octagon barrel marked on the top flat “LEECH & RIGDON CSA.” Walnut one-piece grips with brass trigger guard and back strap. All marked parts match. The distinctive 4-dot cross appears on the brass trigger guard. On the left side of the barrel breech stamped in large letters is “LAFAYETTE LODGE/25/KP” leading me to believe that this revolver was once the part of a collection of war trophies on display at the Knights of Pythias (KP) lodge. Interestingly, the name was misspelled and a “Y” added to left flat of the barrel breech to correct “LAFAETTE.” This stamping was accomplished at some early period following the Civil War. Mr. Michel’s Notes State: “This Leech & Rigdon revolver is marked on the larger stamping “Leech & Rigdon CSA” on the barrel housing and serial number “634” on the cylinder, frame, loading lever, loading lever latch, grips, and backstrap. Apparently, this revolver was once on display at a Kings of Rythias hall, as the left side of the barrel housing is well marked “Lafayette Lodge / 25 / KP”.” CONDITION: The revolver is quite attractive having an even plumb brown patina on all of the iron parts and a nice mellow color to the brass. Typical casting flaws are noted here and there as is moderate wear. There is a chip missing from the toe of the left grip. The revolver functions mechanically well. A nice opportunity to own a rare Confederate revolver in attractive condition. Some additional research may reveal where the location of the “LaFayette Lodge” was located. 4-31349 CW1 (25,000-35,000)
