Colt 1860 Army question
Were the 1860 Army models ever marked with US under or near the COLTS PATENT marking on the left side of the frame, similar to the martially marked SAA’s? I’m looking at one but I’m 99% sure it’s a fake. It appears they were typically marked under the trigger guard, correct?
This gun also two DIFFERENT cartouche markings on the grips, one on each side. That’s two huge red flags, and the gun is being advertised and sold as an original.
Note: this would be a four screw early 1860, if it matters...

The US marking on the frame is bogus. It was either added, or maybe it’s a 2nd generation Army (they were all 4-screw) being passed off as original.
