Thank you for this. The seller has gone quiet after I asked a few more questions so I must assume that he knows that it is probably not an original, not at the price he wants for sure. I will try again though to have a closer look at the piece.In defense of the original poster, Paul, I too would love to have this one or any one of the "undiscovered" Colt Walkers drop into my proverbial hands. However, as others have already said, I believe this may not be authentic. I believe a couple of people have pointed out the problems with the barrel address and serial numbers, but here are some side-by-side pictures comparing the OP pistol versus the Danish Sea Captain's pistol that recently sold for over 1 Million at Rock Island Auction Company. Make your own judgements and good luck!
