    Well, while we are waiting for Leflyer to return I have a question about the Colt logo.

    What are the items the colt appears to be holding?

    It's a broken spear.

    " The Story of the Rampant Colt
    Here’s a fascinating story behind the Rampant Colt. Look closely and you see that the colt carries a spear in its mouth. In heraldry, a horse signifies readiness to serve the monarch. The broken spear signifies a warrior slain in battle. By carrying the spear, this warhorse is continuing the fight for his fallen rider. It's a fitting symbol, considering the indomitable spirit of inventor and entrepreneur Samuel Colt!"

    It is a broken spear. the Colt has caught it in his forelegs and snapped the end off in his teeth.

    Being new to the Colt Forum and for that matter Colt, I have noticed that some early models have the Colt Logo in a Circle.. anyone tell me if that circle in any way can date a revolver. I have noticed recent models have the Colt stamp without the circle. Thanks.

    As far as my original post, once I can acquire the photos, I will post them as well as a question or two on the origin of a 'interesting' revolver.
