REVOLVER, POSSIBLE EARLY BATTLEFIELD RECOVERY FROM SAYLOR’S CREEK. Cal. 36. S# 2041. Bbl. 7 1/2". This is the most recent example of the iconic brass framed Confederate Griswold revolver found. The S# is new to the database and was found in an estate sale partially painted gold in Farmville, VA for $400.00 by consignor. Revolver is all original and authentic & matching. The same estate had a pair of Colt 1860 Army revolvers that consignor is retaining that cost double the price of Griswold! Consignor believes revolvers were retained souvenirs from the last major battle of Civil War, Saylor’s Creek. Indeed, Farmville is nearest town to last major fight of Lee’s Army just outside Appomattox. Samuel Griswold made about half of all approximate 7500 Confederate pistols made in the South at this converted cotton gin factory in Griswoldville, GA. This is standard 2nd model configuration w/ half octagonal barrel housing and 7.5" rnd. bbl. Serial number “2041” is found stamped on the right side of frame, cylinder and barrel housing. Secondary number “1” is found on loading arm, wedge, hammer and trigger guard. Cryptic “A” is observed: back of cylinder, frame, trigger guard and backstrap. Matching assembly “IIII” is cut into the trigger guard, backstrap and frame. Original wood grips are not numbered. This pistol is a fine survivor, original in every regard. UNATTACHED ACCESSORIES: Larry Smith detailed work receipt. CONDITION: very good overall. All markings observed are crisp and discernable though cryptic is weak on back of cylinder. Revolver has been “tuned up” by expert antique arms gunsmith Larry Smith to have old paint and rust removed, repair chipped toes on grips, make action perfect. His receipt of repair and conservation accompanies revolver. Barrel and cylinder have overall dark brown/plum patina with pitting especially at muzzle. Brass has a mottled smooth mixed mustard patina. Grips are well fit, hand worn patina with inside toe insets as noted in restoration report. Butt has dents and dings from when used as tack hammer. Mechanically fine with discernable rifling in pitted bore. (01-20061/JS). ANTIQUE. $20,000-30,000.
