Colt SAA / Single Action Army revolver, matching serial # 26376 with letter stating shipped July 31, 1876 to H & D Folsom, New York, and great fitting  and fine looking leather holster, caliber .45, 7½" round barrel with fixed front sight and one line inscription,  on left side two patent dates 1871 and 1872 plus 45 CAL., actually an early civilian revolver, unfortunately the bluing is missing and the well fitting grips show wear.  The holster is a younger but very nice addition.
The revolver is in good working order and has a good bore.     $4,000.
