The particulars of the Navy Arms G&U 1851 Navy are reasonably well known to this crowd, I would imagine. 

I am looking for insight on a variant within the early G&U run.... has an engraved cylinder with an 1861-1961 rollmark.  Its a civil war centennial commemorative, am I right?

Mine is in the 54xx serial range, xvii.

I believe you are correct. Somebody here was well versed in the G&U, pretty sure it was Dr. Davis. Scroll through this thread and have a look:
