So remember this pic: The barrel and cylinder on the bottom pistol belong to the old worn pistol grip on the upper pistol. The cylinder was sooo rusted I couldnt tell what was written on it. After spending 4 hours in a CLR bath and then 45 minutes of gentle cleaning with fine steel wool I found that there was a very fine and detailed engraving of 7 warships that completely surrounded the cylinder. On top of the engraved battle scene reads: Engaged May 1843 Then engraved length wise reads: COLTS PATENT No 685 (not sure if thats correct, there's still A LOT of rust/grime to tell for sure, gotta clean it up some more) PAT. SEPT. 10th 1850 So this shit is the REAL deal guys. I have all the original parts now and after some restoration, they will be beautiful. So one is a replica, and one is an original COLT from 1850. I need to restore the barrel the same way I did with the cylinder and see what markings are on it. Sorry, I have no camera with me right now so I will post up good picures of the engravings and the markings when I get back home tomorrow evening. Im soo excited to get this thing restored. For a fully restored version of this pistol, it looks to be worth between $3700, to $6900 depending on its condition and what model it is exactly. Even still, I wouldn't sell this thing for twice that much.
