On that part of the barrel is E (or F) AP in a circle. Unlike my 1849 Pocket ASM.

That would make it a Pietta.

More than likely an ASM.  AA = 1975 mfg date

Got this in today's mail.  American Historical Foundation made these in the 1984/86 time frame.  They were made from C and F series 2nd Gens.  Hand engraved and silver plated.  They made 100 of each, Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps commemoratives.  This one is #7 of 100.  The Army one I have is #52 (?) of 100.  I would check it; but it's under a bunch of stuff in the safe.

Cool that you ended up with consecutive S/N Uberti SS navies. I got a Heritage Walker with case, book, etc at $650 shipped. That's the right price. They normally sell for more and most of them go unsold at the higher prices.

Well, you did better than me.  Mine was just a little higher.

I was watching those 1860 army stainless Colts too. They weren't a bad price but I got one cheaper around Thanksgiving last year. Just scored a 1 of 1000 Colt Signature Series musket this week in the wood transit case. Should have it mid-week.

You just have to be patient for the right one to come along.  I've been passing up the 2nd Gen Heritage Walker set for years, waiting on the right one to pop up.  A couple months ago I go one at the right price.   You just need patience.

They came in yesterdys mail.  When checking them this afternoon, I discovered that the serial number on one of them is one digit lower than the Navy I bought back in 2006 (which got me started on tracking them down and collecting them) - so, now I have a consecutive serial numbered pair.

Here is a better picture of both of them.

Those don't come up frequently for sale. Saw one early last year on Gunbroker. So do you think those Sig series engraved patersons are worth $2300?  No way to no how many sig series were made other than the rarity I see them come up for sale.

The Sig Series Patersons are reeeeeealy nice, and probably worth the asking price; but I wouldn't give $2300 for one.

Doggone, Fingers...you are a man on a mission!!!! (j*

No. He is a man on a mission with lots of mad money!

Congrats, Fingers!

Thanks guys.  I don't know about lots of mad money though.  I'm not able to get  everything that comes up for sale.  I had to let a couple 2nnd Gens go to someone else.  Priorities.

Just won these on Gunbroker the other day.  Listing was for "Uberti stainless engraved black powder revolver "
 Of course the only engraving was the roll engraved naval battle scene on the cylinder. They were imported by Allen Firearms of Santa Fe, NM and are two more in my search for these rare Uberti Stainless Colt's. Total known & documented is now up to 31.

Just got this one last week.  2nd Generation Colt 3rd Model Dragoon gold etched in a glass top case.  1 of 206 made.  This one came with all of the original boxes, packaging, and papers.  Price included a Sig Series 3rd Model Dragoon accessory set, Colt Dragoon charcoal blue and gold etched Zippo lighter, and a Colt Dragoon Case pocket knife.

Viewed 64 times and no takers.  OK, I'll just have to drop the prices.

Actually I'm hoping you WON'T post any pictures. That always seems to amplify my weak link,,, {'P

Guess I'll have to post some.  Maybe then I'll get some responses other than lookyloos.
