Got this along with a transaction on a Walker recently. Anyone else collect these?

Hey, I got one of those in the mail recently too.  Mine had been pressed down into a blob of hot wax to seal an envelope and it popped out a pretty neat seal.  Never thought of that...

Wax, huh? I reckon you got yours from the same source as me, Whip!

IIRC, every 2nd Gen came with a Colt Black Powder pin.

Yes, either the pin came in the box or there was a certificate to mail in to get one. I don't remember which case it was.

The first sign of senility is forgetting things. The second sign is...well, I forget... *%<

I also have a number of these. Each of my cased 2nd gen Colts has one and I picked up a package of them at a show.
