Antique CIVIL WAR Era E. A. PRESCOTT Belt Revolver
SCARCE Revolver Made Around the Start of the Civil War
Here we present an antique E. A. Prescott Belt Revolver, made circa 1861-63, in Worcester, Massachusetts. This scarce Civil War revolver is estimated to be one of only several hundred that were made of each of the various styles made by Prescott. It was wartime and the United States stood divided. During a period of rapid industrial innovation, the firearms industry was one of the hottest. The war drove a huge market and many different makers, designs and patents appeared in a very short amount of time. Some of Colt’s most coveted patents expired in 1857, opening opportunities for other gun makers. Smith & Wesson built upon Colt’s ideas and improved the single action revolver with the help of Rollin White, who owned the patent for the bored through chamber (which is a concept still in use in modern revolvers). Many revolvers by many makers were made during this period that infringed on this patent, including this one. This is a really interesting piece of firearms history!
The overall condition is good. The bore is gray with visible rifling. The action remains strong.
