I’ve only seen one other of these in 30 years. It is the rarest martial Colt and the hardest to find. The" Union Defense Committee " was an arm of the US Navy. They purchased 50 of these pistols for naval use during the Civil War . There are only 9 of them known to exist today. This gun has all matching serial numbers except the loading lever. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
