RIGDON AND ANSLEY KNOWN. SN 2373. Cal. 36. Rigdon and Ansley Augusta, Georgia made Confederate revolver serial number 2373 was discovered in Texas in about 1995. No authorities knew about this gun until then (published serial numbers in texts only go to 2359). This gun appears all orig and is properly serial numbered in all places where serial numbers normally are found. In the very late serial numbers of these guns, wedges are found with no springs and this wedge is of that type and though it is not serial numbered, it appears correct. The loading latch is not serial numbered and appears to be a period replacement. The grips profile is slightly different to earlier produced Rigdons in that these are slightly slimmed at frame. The CSA markings on bbl are especially deep and well struck. You are bidding on one of the last revolver's made in the Confederacy and it is a fine example. CONDITION: Metal overall is gray with scattered scratches and dings. SN on triggerguard is partially obscured as can be seen in photos. Only the first three digits of the serial number on cylinder are visible. 4-32943 JS500 (25,000-35,000)
