New York Style Engraved, Etched Panel Colt, Single Action Army Revolver with carved steer head pearl grips. The Colt Archive letter lists SN 96175 as a .44-40 Caliber with a 5 1/2? barrel, blue finish and stocks not listed. It was shipped to Schoverling, Daly & Gales in New York on February 21, 1888 with a total of 5 guns. It was not unusual for the New York dealers to take a blue gun from inventory and have it engraved by one of the local, NY engravers to reduce costs and therefore increase profits and sales of engraved Colts. The serial numbers match on the frame, trigger guard and backstrap with "6175" stamped on the cylinder which would be correct for a gun that left the factory with blue finish in this time period. Some damage to the serial number on the backstrap is present. The action works properly and the bore is fine. A very high percentage of period nickel plating remains on all surfaces. The etched panel is in very strong condition. All factory applied markings on the barrel, frame and trigger guard bow are clear and readable. The carved steer head pearl grips are fantastic and are free of chips or dings. This is a beautiful engraved, etched panel Colt SAA.
