Looking around for a Pocket Positive. Found this: COLT 1920, Factory Error,2 1/2 B (Rare) EXCELLENT : Revolvers at GunBroker.com

What say you esteemed Colt aficionados?

I say a 1912 Police Positive .32 with a Pocket Positive barrel....hence the dented top strap...Don't think the Rampant Colt wth stylized "C" was still used in 1920. Also, the Pocket Pos has a smaller grip frame than Police Pos.

Am I correct in my assessment? Still expanding my knowledge base of old Colt's.

This is the second go around....first go around had a buy now of $1200....I'm thinking maybe $120 as a shooter....not a collector.

I think you're right, it's a Police Positive, the ser. no. of which would date it to 1912 and would agree with the stylized "C" on the sideplate, which TBOCF says ran from 1909 to 1913. The "compression"marks may have been made by whoever switched barrels. I'd pay more than $120, no matter the category in which it falls. :eek:
