Nipples appear original and are un-chipped; action functions crisply; bore is clean with scattered erosion and distinct rifling. This 1847-made Baby Dragoon is a rare collector's prize; the 6'' barrel length makes it even more desirable. Est.: $900-$1,500. (Antique)

Engraved 1st Gen. Colt Single Action Army Revolver

Lot #88 (Sale Order 88 of 701)

Beautifully Engraved 1st Generation Colt Single Action Army Revolver, engraved by Carmine Lombardy, #91136, .45 Colt cal., 5.5'' barrel, nickel finish, with modern-accomplished high quality New York style engraving, and one-piece ivory grips. Revolver originally mfg'd in 1883. Accompanied with this revolver is a letter from James Alaimo, former superintendent of the Colt Custom Gunshop, who after giving some background information on Carmine Lombardy, states that the Colt Custom Shop has recognized his talents for engraving, and he often engraved for both the Colt Custom Gunshop and a few special other clients. He further states that the engraving coverage is a very generous C++ level of Lombardy expert extra-fancy scroll using a blended style of both Helfricht and Nimschke. Front sight and hammer are engraved as well. Plating is a very fine nickel performed by the same platers that do the work for the Colt Custom Gunshop. Surface of the engraving is inked and baked, adding depth to the overall affect. Mr. Lombardy was so proud of this particular revolver that he signed it in three separate locations,none of which is visible without partial disassembly. Grips are meticulously hand-fitted African elephant ivory in the one-piece configuration, and Mr. Alaimo states that he personally selected and fit this ivory to this revolver, just as he did as former superintendent of the Colt Custom Gunshop. Condition is excellent and appearing as new as the day it left the engraver's shop. As fine a modern engraved antique revolver as you will find. Est.: $5,000-$7,500. (Antique)

Bohlin ''Mexican Loop'' Western Holster Bohlin ''Mexican Loop'' Western Holster

Bohlin ''Mexican Loop'' Western Holster

Lot #124 (Sale Order 124 of 701)

Hand-Tooled Russet Leather ''Mexican Loop'' Western Holster, by Edward Bohlin, with engraved sterling silver buckle, c. 1930s-50s, made to fit a small frame revolver with barrel length up to about 4-3/4''. The holster body is completely hand-tooled in the old-time ''California'' pattern of large flowers and leaves against a stippled background tinted a dark brown-black color to accentuate the deep relief of the carving. Even the back flap is border tooled with the same dark background. This style of holster, which supposedly originated in northern Mexico, features a full-length ''skirt'' turned behind the body to form a loop that could easily slip over a bulky cartridge belt; the rear flap also kept the holster from riding up when the gun was drawn. Edward H. Bohlin ran away from his Swedish home at age 15 for the U.S., where he roamed the West before settling in Hollywood in the 1920s. There he became ''Saddlemaker to the Stars'' during Tinseltown's Golden Age of Western films, and gained fame for his elaborate (and expensive) gold- and silver-decorated saddles used in the legendary Pasadena Rose Parade. Condition of the holster is fine, being a smooth light russet color with bold details, and marked ''Bohlinmade/Calif./Hollywood'' in an oval on the reverse side of the skirt. Silver buckle has light tarnish; stitching is sound throughout; leather shows just light handling, age and use. Est.: $700-$900.

Cigarette case is not directly Savage Arms related but the logo is similar and displays well with the other items.

Most of the ammo boxes are complete, a few are missing an inside flap or two; the glue on one of the seams on the .22 Hornet has dried and broken loose but could be repaired. Brass cartridges are generally very good showing normal toning and a few have small spots of verdigris and staining. Modern black plaque with some chipping to the surface, cast Indian head is in nice condition and could easily be mounted to a new backing. Overall a good variety of Savage-related memorabilia.

Composite Martially-mkd Colt 1851/61 Navy Revolver

Lot #398 (Sale Order 398 of 701)

Composite Martially-marked Colt Model 1851/61 Navy Revolver, with period leather holster, #65250, .36 cal., 7.5'' ''streamlined'' barrel, with a small German-silver blade front sight marked with the one-line ''New-York U.S. America'' address; patent ''creeping'' loading lever; round 6-shot cylinder with the rolled naval battle scene; frame marked ''Colts/Patent/U.S.'' on left side; brass gripstraps with a tiny ''V'' inspector's stamp on left-front web of small rounded triggerguard; oil-finished one-piece walnut grips. It appears that this revolver was assembled from Model 1851 Navy parts (from the barrel back) and a Model 1861 streamlined barrel that was obviously re-numbered to match the balance of the revolver, as only around 38,000 Model 1861s were mfg'd (c. 1861-73) and this gun's serial number is many thousands higher. Backstrap was also re-numbered; wedge and screw are modern replacements. Condition is good as assembled. Steel surfaces exhibit an overall smooth gunmetal gray-brown patina with scattered light erosion; the barrel shows more use, with scattered discoloration, nicks and pitting (mainly to left side and right lug); the cylinder scene is light (may have been rolled that way) and perhaps15% visible; brass has a smooth aged color. Grips are complete and solid, with 2 ''kill notches'' on right side, knackering at butt and scattered nicks and dings from age and use. Action is sticky but functions; bore is surprisingly clean with deep rifling. Brown leather military-style flap holster is complete, with surface flaking mainly at barrel area and back side, and a 2'' area of loose stitching; the initials ''C.N.G.'' are carved into the belt loop. Est.: $400-$800. (Antique)
