Colt 1851 Percussion navy, large iron triggerguard, cal 36 . Serial 45682, all matching, including the wedge. This variation is well explained in the new Navy book of Robert Jordan, page 87 through 89.
In fact these are made with US made parts and NOT London parts.   Approx. 30 000 made but still pretty difficult to locate a good one.
This one has a nice pleasing brown patina showing hints of blue.  The beginning of the barrel had a sight removed.  Address is strong and the bore is super, certainly 95/100.

The orig. grips are present showing most of their finish, just a tiny sliver missing from the right side. Works perfect and all original.  100 % scene on cylinder.
