I have 2 old colt boxes with the serial numbers inside and was wondering if anyone could tell me what the dates of manufacture are? One is a Colt Officers model target SN 621006. The other is a Colt Army Special SN 527541. Thanks.
1. 45 Cal is on the bottom of the trigger guard
2. On top of the barrel is: Colts PT F.A. MFG. CO.
Hartford CT. U.S.A.
3. On the left side of gun above the trigger guard:
Sept. 19, 1871
July 2, 1872
Jan. 19, 1875
4. The SN 111043 is located at 3 places:
bottom of the barrel, bottom of the trigger guard, and lastly the bottom of the hand grip.
5. This Colt appears to have Mother of Pearl grips.
Please does anyone have an idea of the model and date of manufacture ?
