Post by: Fingers McGee on December 08, 2016, 05:58:56 PM
Here is a 1 of 25 gold inlayed, engraved 2nd Generation 1862 Pocket Navy.  The back strap & trigger guard as well as the flask and mold are gold plated and the nipple wrench/screwdriver is engraved and gold inlayed.

Yes.  Colt Custom Shop product.  Not sure exactly when it was done though.  It has a real low serial number for a Pocket Navy so could have been as early as 1979.
