    Thanks for this clarification!!
    Wait a second, Terry. There's a type of SAA that you haven't owned???

    I hadn't seen that dealer before either Keith. I'll stick that letter back and I might run up on the gun one day!

    About 30 numbers out of range for the .44 rim but with Colt, who knows.
    Collectors Firearms has a rim that they claim is NY engraved. No factory letter but a written authentication letter from Ron Graham.

    An old time collector Mr. Tom Seymour had serial #1891 which was a nickel 44 rimfire x 7-1/2 that was well worn and probably NY engraved with mexican snake and eagle ivories that Julia sold for $25k back in Oct of 2013. The majority of rimfires were sold to the big NY dealers who exported them to Mexico. The caliber was about obsolete here in the states by the time colt were making the guns.
