Important Sam Colt Presented 1862 Police to Mrs. John B. Floyd in its original book case. An iconic and well known pistol most recently illustrated in the Colt Engraving book (Full page #182). Only 1 of 2 known presentations made by Colt to ladies, the other to Mrs. Cobb. J.B. Floyd was Secretary of War during the Civil War and received a group of presentation Colts from the hands of Gustave Young. This subject Colt shows deluxe and profuse engraving executed by the hand of the master himself Gustave Young. The scrolls are very intricate with small heads, extra coverage and hand cut barrel address and Colt’s Patent. The pistol shows original fine checkered ivory grips with super deluxe checkered bottoms. S/N 781 and all matching. This pistol is in very good condition showing most silver on the straps and traces of finish on the balance of metal surfaces. The original bookcase is inscribed on spine with matching inscription.
