    My humble collection. Top left is an 1898 in .38LC shipped to Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett & Company, Chicago, IL; Middle is a 1880 in .38LC shipped to Simmons Hardware Co., St. Louis, MO; bottom left is a 1895 in .41 LC shipped to E.K. Tryon, Jr. and Co., Philadelphia, PA ; top right is a 1905 in .38LC that I built with mismatched numbers; middle is a 1883 in .38 LC that I am rebuilding; bottom right is a 1886 in .41 LC that was shipped to JP Moore & Sons, New York, NY (originally Nickel). The second photo is my progress on the 1883 lightning, and I have since found an original cylinder pin. Only the 1895 was in working condition when I received them, and all have been fired with the exception of the 1883, which I am still working on.

    And a Lightning dating from 1903. I might consider selling this one if you are interested, only because I tend to collect pre-1899 stuff these days.
