“AS FOUND” ALL ORIGINAL CONFEDERATE GRISWOLD BRASS FRAME REVOLVER
This revolver has been known since the 1970s when in the famous Confederate collection of Fred Slaton of Nebo Kentucky. Revolver is fine survivor, uncleaned, authentic & matching throughout, numbered and marked on every part that can be marked. Samuel Griswold made about half of all approximate 7500 Confederate revolvers made in the Confederacy at his converted cotton gin factory near Macon in Griswoldville, GA. This is a standard 2nd Model configuration with half octagonal barrel housing and 7.5″ round barrel. Serial number “2110” is found stamped on the left side of frame, cylinder and barrel housing. Secondary number “10” is found on loading arm, wedge, hammer, trigger guard, and penciled on one piece walnut grips. Cryptic “X” is observed: barrel, cylinder, frame, trigger guard, and backstrap.
Matching assembly “XIIII” is cut into the trigger guard, backstrap and frame. This pistol is a fine survivor, original in every regard.
