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.

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.

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.
