This is a nice, rare Colt 1849 Pocket. It was engraved by the hands of Gustav Young when he was 25 years old in 1852. This piece was most certainly done by Young, as evidenced by the smaller and more dense punch-dot background, the fine shading on the animal head faces, and the trademark wolf's head on the hammer.
Few engraved 1849 Pocket revolvers had a 5-inch barrel like this one. This one is in very nice shape considering that it is 141 years old. Much of the silver remains, and it is equipped with highly-figured walnut grip panels that were only found on Engraved models.
This gun comes with a scarce, Colt patent-marked flask; a Colt patent-marked, dual-bullet mold; and a London-marked cap box. This all comes in an original, mahogany, fitted case. The lid and lining appear to be professional replacements.
