This revolver was in its original oiled shipping sleeve when I got it. It had clearly never been lifted out of the Styrofoam, much less cocked or rotated. After I removed the dried and crystallized preservative, it turned out to be the most nearly flawless 3d Dragoon I've seen. The 3d Dragoon is one of only two models that Colt produced in both C- and F-Series. The C-series model is more prized by collectors for its Royal blue finish. As seen in the photos, this particular piece also enjoys especially attractive case hardening. Dennis Russell's 6th edition price guide recommends a NIB price of $800. Several have recently gone in online auctions for $900.
