Hi,

Can anyone help me, if I'm missing certificate of authenticity of an old Colt Whitneyville-Hartford gun I do have serial numbers etc on the gun. How do you suggest to get it verified and find out who has previously owned it? Its heritage but by the looks etc and by the bid received by a collector I'm confident that it is authentic but I dont know when and where it was bought.

Oops, is see the full length barrel in inside the bag now. I just looked in the book of colt firearms from James Serven and page 58 shows that patent stamp on the right side of serial numbers 1118 and 1123. Looks like it has English stamps as well.

Hi, sorry for lack of response but I dont have the gun available to take more pictures myself. The serialnumber are 1128, and not between 1118-1123. According to stories for relatives it should be English stamps..

Does anybody know if there might be interest of old official albums of Colt Guns? Feels bad to throw in the trash..

Alright, didnt think there would be any interest in the catalogues. Might find even more when going through all papers, how can I find any details about guns with specific serial numbers? Whitneyville are 1128 and have more Colt as well with 1084 that seems to be an old one. And Colt Paterson with no16 which must be a early version?

I have a collection of colt catalogs. Generally, the common years will sell for close to $5 ea. If sold individually. Using postal media rate allows them to be shipped for about a buck. I am missing a few postwar years and would be interested. They do have value. Many of us remember these in the pre internet days and it brings back memories.
