Did Colt make lanyard rings a factory option on their percussion revolvers?

I would agree with dogface, but I'll add the following.

While a lanyard ring may not have been a regularly advertised option in their price lists of the percussion era, I would not be surprised if there are some few percussion Colt's out there where Colt installed one at the customer's request. Here's such an example advertised by James Julia as having a "Scarce lanyard ring in grips with factory cutout."

Also, a "lanyard ring" was available on the detachable shoulder stocks.
