Thanks. I looked back and saw that and edited my post a few mintes ago.. What I see in the photos is more than the box's listed. You really need the archives letter and a copy of the CCS build sheet. No other way to verify everything. Just order one letter
for either serial number ( it won't matter which) as either letter will list both guns shipped as a pair to Dury or the original purchaser or both
I'd bet Dury ordered the guns for the customer. Off chance they may have the original order form.
Model P1840 Custom Shop guns
blue and case
journeyman D engraved
2 gold lines (cylinder and barrel)
extra cylinders fitted (also one gold line)
One-piece Sambar stag grips (I am guessing order or at least shipped after ivory was no longer available? July 2016)
consecutive serial numbers
Hefty price tag to replace them.
Everyone seems to want to beat up on the Sheriff's Model. I think they are wrong. Yes is shows a little use/handling. Still, it is a Colt engraved gun with nice ivory. Typically $6K+ for that combo today. Engraved C grade Sherrif's with factory ivory?...not all that common.
The CS 4445 # on the box is the Colt Custom Shop order number and original build sheet. Letter this one too and ask about that CS#. You'll want the # for your pair too. Ask Dury's for the SC order # for those guns.
