Should be considered a valued possession. It is definitely worth finding out more about it.

Of course condition is important. That is why Gyvel recommended photos.

Hard to post them directly to the thread but you can upload to photobucket and then "copy" them to the thread.

The link provided by RJay may give you the answers to all of your questions. At the very least, they will want to know a little about your specific pistol for their records (if you don't mind). When you review the site you will see that the FROCs are dead serious about the pistol. It is a good site.

I think I am correct in stating that the value in these pistols rests in the fact that they were manufactured by the same company which made them in the nineteenth century using the same drawings and most of the specs that were licensed in the original nineteenth century agreement with Colt. This makes them, in the eyes of some, more desirable than the second and third gen Colt cap and ball revolvers.
