COLT DELUXE ROSEWOOD CASE
FOR 1851 NAVY

This is an extraordinary find.  It is a deluxe brass bound rosewood, French fitted Colt Case for an 1851 Navy.  It dates to about 1856.  This case is absolutely untouched and unmolested in any way.  No repairs, no polishing, no patching of any kind.  It is 100 % original inside and out.  It is for a small guard 1851 Navy in approximately the 50,000-70,000 range.  The bullet mold is a correct Colt patent brass mold with a burnished white sprue cutter.  It is virtually new.  The nipple wrench is original with some finish.  The flask is a correct screw top flask which is marked American Flask Company on the top.  The spring is broken on the flask top, so the thumb piece does not rebound but it still retains some original finish mixing with pleasant patination.  There is a 50 count embossed Eley cap tin in the compartment beneath the trigger guard.  These cases were used with the very finest embellished Colt firearms and it is really unusual to find something like this lying about today.  You may view another case like this in the book of the William Locke collection on page 98.  SOLD!!
