I'm leaning toward Army since the serial number is in the 56K range. 61 Navies only went to 36k.
I'm really very curious about the E.W. Moore stampings. There is a Edwin Ward Moore who commanded the second texas navy in a battle against the mexican navy. The scene of which is depicted on the cylinders of the pistols.
No I have to find out if my particular pistol was in fact owned by this famous texas hero or not. He died in 1865.
