^^ I was using that particular auction as a generic example of the breed, not as one that I am planning to buy. Looking at it with a critical eye, it's pretty clear that it's a counterfeit.
I was just curious about any personal hands-on experience with 19th century contemporary copies of the Colt series. They must have been fairly common, and there must be examples remaining for collecting.
