Thread should really have an automatic lock on them after 1 year. These zombie threads keep popping up every other day.

I don't know who owns this gun but I hope they know what they bought. Point is this is just an interesting thread that is 7 years old but check out the pic of the trigger guard screws. There is almost no metal left between the screw "well" and the face of the frame. Would Colt take the frame down that far? And then restamp the US and patent dates? Look at the cylinder flutes. Soft rounded edges. JMO, but I don't think this one is as pure as the driven snow. I think it's been this way for many years but still altered. Again, JMO!

As JohnH pointed out seven years ago, the letter is not for the same gun. The gun that was for sale was 13554. The letter was for 13416. The seller was making the claim that since 13416 had this history, his offering had the same history. So the question to me is, were the revolvers sold to Virginia in sequential order, or were they hit and miss? Am I looking at this the right way? It seems to me someone was connecting the dots and adding dots when they didn't connect.

Not sure what the fascination with these guns is…14268…by the way, the Kopec letter is wrong…The serial number range noted is #12194 to #14377 (Kopec and Fenn).

Oops, overlooked the fact that US and patent dates not in evidence here. That could explain why the frame was ground down so far.
