Personally, I would contact the Colt archives historian and request an authentication letter. It will add to the value . Cost is around $200-$300

Collectors Firearms has a line you can send a pic to and they send you an appraisal of what they’ll pay for.

Adam,

While checking out detailed pics of the Colt, first thing that stood out was the action screws appear untouched, in original condition. Doubt they’ve ever been removed or seen a screwdriver. Amazing condition for a 160 yr old revolver.

I have had some interest, and one offer, with that said I am waiting to get some real idea on value, my dad bought it for my mom 50 yrs ago for 800.00 because she found it to be cute. ��

Is it in working order or appear to be? That's a neat old gun for sure. It would be interesting to know if any history is ever discovered on it.

looks like an 1862 police with a 4-1/2 barrel
in the 3-4K price range if all the numbers match and to the right person

Yes sir, it is the 1862 pocket police, thank you, most what I have seeing in original non molested condition has been in the same price range. Thank you sir.
