Armi San Marco.  It's an A with an S and M overlaying it.

Smokin_Gun, from a collector, Do No Shoot It.  This Rattlesnake Commemorative was 1 of 5000, issue never completed, by the New England Collector’s Association.  They used Uberti's and Pietta's as well.  Yours is the first to show up made by Armi San Marco and the lowest serial number #0110.  RPRCA has #0259 made on Uberti revolvers and #0966 made on Pietta revolvers.  It appears that the paper work is also with your revolver.  I have seen them priced from $400 several years back to $700.

There is also a Frederic Remington “Cowboy” done on the 1851 Navy 3rd Model also by the New England Collector’s Association.

Yours is a great find.

I found one of those myself, mine is 0202. Not a giant fan of engraving but it is a good looking pistol.

I also have one of these.  The New England number is 0535.   I haven't determined the manufacturer yet.  There is a AS inside a square on the bottom of the frame, but I think that is the manufacture date (year).  The other markings are too small for me to see, even with 2x reading glasses.   They are pretty though, mine came in a wood presentation case with royal blue velvet lining, which really sets off the fire blued parts.
