A .44 PERCUSSION REVOLVER, MODEL 'COLT ARMY 'FOUR-SCREW'', serial no. 16733-'0',
for 1861, with round 8in. barrel signed 'ADDRESS COL SAML. COLT NEW-YORK U.S. AMERICA', applied fore-sight, stepped six-shot cylinder (scene lost), open iron frame of the four-screw variety, brass trigger-guard and front-strap, walnut grip (worn), all matching numbers bar the wedge (un-numbered), each number suffixed with the letter 'O', the whole darkly stained with some bruising
Other Notes: A certain amount of speculation has existed around the 'O' series guns. Originally thought to be guns bought by and subsequently rejected by the United States War Department, popular opinion by collectors now has these guns down as one of a batch of 1000 guns supplied with shoulder-stocks and issued to the 11th New York Cavalry
