Hello All:

I have had in my collection for several years now a Colt New Model Army Revolver marked U.S. ARMY MODEL 1901, serial number 141607, with inspector's marks of R.A.C. (Rinaldo A. Carr; on frame, grips, & cylinder) along with L.E.B. (Captain Leroy E. Briggs - Remington rework for WWI) underneath the previous inspector's initials on the left side of the frame. The last patent date on the barrel is March 5, '95 & the manufacture date from the serial number look-up I did on proofhouse was late 1900.My question would be was this revolver originally a Model 1896 reworked at Colt to add the lanyard ring & remarked Model 1901 or originally made as a Model 1901? All small parts & other markings have "1607", which is the last four digits from the serial. I have included some photos. I am interested in possibly selling it & would appreciate any further information that could be shared, i.e. Army contracts it was shipped under, use in Spanish-American War, etc. Thanks in Advance!
