This rare model identified by relief bolster, raised area receiving the barrel screw on the forward underside of frame. This is the second type of “pregnant” frame with the large COLT [italics] address on the barrel. No blue remaining on the barrel or silver on the frame; standard walnut grips. Quite a scarce item, approximately 1800 made circa 1871-1872.
