.45LC, 7 1/2 inch barrel, strong bore with pin prick oxidation, 80% nickel on barrel and ejector, 20% on cylinder, 80% on frame, smooth aged excellent grips.
This revolver was inspected by Henry Nettleton (HN) for the Government. The U.S. has been removed, nickel applied and new grips installed. It is a perfect example of a "buy back" Colt. This is affirmed by a letter from J.A. Kopec. There is also some family history with it that does not have any bearing on the value.
