This RARE 1926-dated 1st Generation Colt M1873 .44-40 Single-Action Revolver is in very good+ condition with a very good bore. Per the included original Colt factory letter, this weapon is in original condition, including the custom carved steer head motif grip. It has a 7.5" barrel, case-hardened receiver, and Colt steer-head ivory grips. Some light scattered pitting, but 95% of the finish is there. Comes with a nice leather holster with cartridge loops and older ammunition. This was carried by Raymond Lee Scaggs, who had served in the Medical Services Corps in WWI, and when he left the Army settled in Tucson, Arizona. While there, he became involved with the Pima County Sheriff"s Posse, a volunteer organization that showed off their riding skills and western traditions in parades and rodeos. Attached are pictures (not included with the revolver, family kept) from a 1950 Tucson Rodeo Day Parade in Tucson and the 1950 Rose Bowl Parade, as flag bearers and wearing the revolver.
