Very heavily polished and reblued. Check to see if you can still see a cylinder number, and check the wedge for a number. No collector value, but something nice to get from grampa. Something I would keep in the family.

Thanks to all for the info and the welcome.
All I got from grandpa was advice, "Don't eat the yellow snow". :sneaky:
And with the weather we all are having that good advice. Here in MN where I'm from we woke up to -36 this morning.
Gotta love it.

Son and wife live north and west of Minneapolis. Crazy people up there! -8 here in mid-Missouri this morning. But sun is shining for the first time in weeks.

Hello and welcome to the Colt Forum from West Virginia. Glad you have joined us all here. The wedge is a matching number to your gun. Last 4 numbers match your last 4 on the gun. Great Colt with great history as passed down from your Grandfather. ENJOY IT. I like it a lot myself.

Holey tamole, an original Army refinished or not- and I would think that not uncommon someplace along the line in the last century and a half- is just a marvelous thing. They are such a beautiful piece of art ....and history. Congratulations.

I like it, definitely not an abused example. Now, only one other part to check: Once the wedge is removed, pull the barrel off and remove the cylinder. The shaft that the cylinder is on is called the "arbor". Check to see if the portion of the serial number is stamped on the arbor. The way this revolver looks I'll bet it is there.
