Colt 1851 Navy
.36 caliber revolver
My father traded a Model T body for this pistol many years ago.
It's all original, in nice shape, and still has it's original case.
According to it's all-matching serial number, this original Model 1851 Colt was manufactured in 1854
Is that a tiny "G" or just a odd wear mark?
And a "3"?
Serial number 36523 on the cylinder. So little of the "Naval Scene" remains that it's hard to discern it ever had one.
Only a few waves, and the edge of a sail can be made out. Barely.
Underside showing three more matching serials...
...and another on the butt.
Accessories: Check out the mold and powder flask!

"Hmmm, I wonder what's in this old box?"
Wow! What treasures indeed!
I have not been able to find any information about Mr. Theo. E. Stavenier thus far.
I don't know what these little bits are...other than the nipple wrench.
It seems the piece on the right is rubber capped in steel. The left is a simple band.
I placed them next to the wrench for scale.
A very nice ensemble. If only it could talk...
