This is one of the rare Colt 1860s that was not overhauled at a government armory after the Civil War for use by the post-war cavalry in the Indian Wars from the mid-1860s through at least 1874. The pistol has the original serial number and parts and not mixed parts.
The historic Colt 1860 served through most of the Civil War, and then was chosen to serve on the western frontier with the US cavalry. As D. Farrington says at page 31 in his book, “Arming & Equipping the U. S. Cavalry 1865-1902,” these “Colt Army .44 revolvers did see hard service in the hands of cavalrymen and came to be very well liked and relied upon in the often short, always savage, actions that characterized guerilla warfare with Indians.”
