Lettered Colt revolver in 38 WCF, with 5.5 inch barrel, shipped to Houston TX in 1897. Very little original blue remains, with traces in isolated areas around ejector rod housing and receiver rear next to hammer slot. Metal is a consistent light to medium gray color. Surface is rough from many tiny pits, especially around cylinder. Bore is bright with clear rifling present, and signs of uniform pitting visible under magnification. Charge holes appear smooth surfaced with well defined edges where diameters change due to chambering. Barrel markings are shallow but still clear. Patent dates on frame are almost crisp. Grips have smoothed from handling, show a slight amount of shrinkage, and have some small scratches, a few dents or tiny gouges. Grip color is a very dark brown that appears black depending on lighting. Action runs smooth with a little looseness when fully locked. Screw heads lightly marred from improper screwdriver use in several places. Numbers match where observed, with exception of "667" inside loading gate. Condition is NRA Very Good ***Antique Firearm***
