Here is an early Colt.
The red flag for me is that the serial number on the cylinder is not legible. I would need to know if the chambers were straight walled or conical as the cavalry cylinder . The gun description indicates usage , it's well worn . The doubting Thomas in me says that the cylinder was a period replacement . That being said, I still think it is an awesome early 1860 .
