Colt 1862 Police. This is a very early gun being serial number 651 and has a Hartford barrel address. Also very desirable as it has an iron backstrap and trigger guard and it is not English proofed. Gun has a nice smooth brown patina all over the metal surfaces with traces of blue in protected areas. Back strap in period inscribed ìJoseph F. Sinnott Philad.î Sinnott was a mogul in his day being the owner of one of the largest distilleries, named Gibsonton Mills Distillery. He built a giant 32 room mansion named Rathalla in Rosemont Philadelphia. The estate which sat on 40 acres eventually became the college campus for Rosemont College and the Rathalla house still stands and is in use today. A packet of research accompanies this historic gun.
