Now that I can post photos, here's one of a sample arrangement my daughter (she's the artistic one) made for a display at a regional Colt show. I never made the display nor the show, but I like the arrangement and will make the display some day. Sorry for the image size, but it does some detail.



I'm sure you'll all recognize them. Each is in 99% or better condition, and you can see the period differences in Colt's level of finish. The Police Positive Target .22WRF is serial number 88, and the nickel Army Special is in .32-20, otherwise they're unremarkable. I also have period ammo and catalogs to match each gun, except the 1889.

I wouldn't say they're unremarkable /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif. They're beauties, well preserved, and look to be in good hands.

Man, that is awesome. It's hard not to turn green with envy. Nice collection and great photo.

Just my opinion, but I would turn them over showing the cylinder release. That and the no front support for the ejector rod shows everyone that they are Colts.
Very nice collections of some well cared for Colts.

I like to show the gate latch side also, but my daughter was the "art director" here, and I had to go with that. By the way, she just turned 16 and was 15 when this was made.

Thanks all for the compliments, we both appreciate them.
