Colt Police Positive .38 Special ~ Master Engraved by “Duke” Pursley
Colt Police Positive ~ Master Engraved by “Duke” Pursley
An impressive, Master engraved and signed with provenance Colt Police Positive in new, unfired condition.
This Police Positive was Manufactured in 1922 and engraved by American Master engraver Aaron "Duke" Pursley whose prominence was officially declared in 1986 by The Firearms Engravers Guild of America (FEGA).
The guild recognizes "Duke" as one of just forty-five Master engravers in the Country whose artistic talent and ingenious styling of American engraving has been established over the course of his sixty-six-year career.
"Duke" is a larger-than-life, American icon born of the Old West, whose story is as fascinating as any book you may ever read.
I had the pleasure of speaking with “Duke” by phone in March of 2018 when he confirmed the serial number and told me that he remembered engraving this Colt so many years ago.
Without my asking Duke graciously wrote and mailed me a letter attesting to his work on this Colt and in the letter he states that he signed his mark “A” with a hanging “P” into the frame of this Colt.
The revolver features his beautiful American floral scroll engraving, Old World rust blue and Cabochon fire accents. The piece remains in new, excellent condition, mechanically perfect and unfired.
The letter from “Duke” bearing providence to the work shall be included in this offering.
Model: Police Positive
Caliber: .38 Special
