COLT PRESENTATION CASE FOR THE MODEL 1860 ARMY REVOLVER – IN EXCELLENT CONDITION:  This Colt Presentation Case has survived the years in remarkable condition and would serve very well to display a high quality Colt Model 1860 Army Revolver.   

The interior is partitioned to separate the revolver, flask, caps, bullets, and the necessary tools such as the mold, screwdriver, and capper.  The revolver compartment will accept an 8” barreled pistol. 

The scarlet lining is in excellent condition showing no separation from the case walls, no mothing, and no fraying.  The partition walls are intact, none of the partitions are loose, nor is there any fraying to the lining where it passes over the top edges of the partitions.  The two partitions which formed the lower right compartment which was situated immediately in front of the toe of the grip and immediately below the trigger guard were removed a long time ago – perhaps when the case was initially delivered to the original customer.  The imprint of the two partitions is still visible, but there is no wear, tearing or damage where they were removed carelessly or due to wear by the pistol.  From all appearances, these two pieces were removed early in the case’s life and this modification was done intentionally.  The location of these partitions are shown in the photograph below by blue lines applied to the photograph – of course, these blue lines do not appear in the interior of the case.   

There are imprints created by the pistol high points of the muzzle, cylinder, trigger guard and grips, and the powder flask and mold, which have left shadows of light discoloration on the lining, evidence of the pistol and accessories this case once held.   

The exterior of the case is in likewise very good condition showing only the most minor shelf wear and retaining an attractive finish.  The lid mates securely with the base with no warping.  All the joints are solid and all of the wood is intact with no chips, cracks or severe marring.  The lock escutcheon is in place and the lock functions freely and engages properly with the original key present to complete the case.   

This is very nice presentation case and one that would complement a high quality Model 1860 Colt Army Revolver.  (0210)  $1250
