    1863 made 1851 colt navy

    Can anyone please give me a best guess what this revolver is plated with? The markings are crisp including the address on the barrel top ( i forgot to photo it). And when it was plated? Thank you.

    Tried to upload a pic of the underside serial numbers. Very sharp, but i could not get the photo to upload.

    It appears to have been plated long after its date of manufacture, probably in the 20th century. The s/n on the bottom of the lug looks (crudely) “refreshed”.
