  • Description: Serial #NEW YORK, .44-40, 7 1/2” barrel with an excellent, bright bore. This is one of only one hundred revolvers made by Colt in 1984 to celebrate the United States: one revolver each for the fifty states and one each their capitals. The revolver is finished in a deep, rich blue with seamless gold inlay embellishments including a Rampant Colt on the loading gate, fleur-de-lis on the chambers, Colt corporate logo on the top of the backstrap, and profile map of New York State on the recoil shield. Additionally, there is a gold “USA” at the muzzle on the left side with an engraved “Edition” executed in graceful cursive letters. The original checkered ivory diamond-center grips are likewise in excellent, virtually unused condition and are assembly numbered to the gun on the interior. Also present under the grips is the artist's signature (“BY S. KAMYK”; Steven Kamyk) on the left side of the backstrap near the butt. These exquisite revolvers were made at the urging of Al DeJohn, then Superintendent of the Colt Custom Shop, especially for discerning collectors of high grade Colts. The revolvers were shipped in special presentation cases marked “USA” on the lids and having plush red velvet linings (the original case is included with this revolver). This is an exceptional, one-of-a-kind Colt single-action revolver, made to commemorate an important state, and would make a stellar addition to any collection. {Ref. “The Post-War Colt Single-Action Revolver 1976-1986” by Don Wilkerson; 1986} FFL
