    I recently aquired an old colt 1851 revolver. 80% original finish 5" octagon barrel with "ADDRESS COL SAM L COLT NEW-YORK US AMERICA" stamped on top. "COLTS PATENT" stamped on left side below cylinder. Back strap and trigger guard are slightly tarnished brass and the #2 is stamped on left side front of trigger guard. Dark wood grips have minor scratches. serial #205836 on bottom of barrel, foward of brass trigger guard, on trigger guard, bottom of back strap, and on cylinder all match. I would like to know the value of this revolver and any info on its authenticity. Thank you!

    Hi suprslik.......wecome to TFF! :)

    To give you an approximate value of your 1851 Navy, we'll need to know the serial # and the % of the original finish left.

    As for it's authenticity, that can only be determined by a "hands-on" examination by a Colt expert.

    Are you sure the barrel is 5"? Should be 7 1/2".

    Also, that address should be NEW-YORK CITY or NEW-YORK U.S. AMERICA. Which is it?

    Yeah the barrel is 5". Ive been looking around and being that the barrel is the size it is, it may be a model 1849 pocket revolver. but I dont know, thats why I'm asking.
