I picked this one up a few weeks ago. It letters as 45 x 3-1/2 nickel finish factory engraved with carved steerhead pearls.
Checking with Don Jones who has the colt special order records in his possession he found this gun recorded and it records level 5 engraving and carved steerhead on right and american eagle on left. It shipped to J.S. Dunlay in Houston Texas in January of 1904. Sadly, J.S. Dunlay was bankrupt by the fall of 1904 and went out of business.
I'll put up some some photos for viewing.
