A very eye appealing L.D. Nimschke engraved '62 Colt Police . It's of a similar pattern as the one that R.L. Wilson used for the cover of his book L.D Nimschke Firearms Engraver . Actually, the engraving on this pistol is of a exhibition quality. The 28011 serial number would date this pistol as manufactured in 1864. All the numbers match with the exception of the wedge which is correct. The 6 1/2" barrel retains 30-40 % of it's heavily tarnished silver finish which blends very well with the overall aged patina. The relief carved ivory grips have a acquired a beautiful aged patina. A great addition to any quality Colt collection.
