Found this today...old Colt Black Powder Revolver. Owner (very old woman) says it belonged to her (now dead) husband's grandfather. Been in family forever, but she wants to know it's age a curious about it's value.

It's stamped "COLTS PATENT" on the frame near the left front of the cylinder.

The numbers 47655 are stamped close together, but on three parts where the brass trigger guard meets the dark steel frame.

The cylinder is stamped "US PATENT No 7655

It's an 1860 Army made in 1862 and aside from the bent trigger guard and missing lever latch it's in great shape for sitting in a basement. I'd say it's worth around 1500.00
