    Hello, all. My dad has got a few questions about his Colt Navy London revolver, so I'm trying to help him out with your guys' support.

    It's in good to great condition with matching serial numbers on all parts, #41894. On the cylinder is an etching of naval ships and stamped on the gun are the words "Address Col. Colt London," along with the letters "V.P."

    My dad's curious as to how to find out more about this gun's history and what a revolver like this would fetch at retail.

    Any help is much appreciated!

    Thanks again.

    Colt's London Armory was in existence from 1852-1857. Yours was made in 1856. It's hard to set a value without actually seeing the gun but best case scenario with a lot of original bluing and case colors showing could be as much as 8,000.00, maybe more with todays market. However be very wary as fakes and very well made ones do exist.

    Thanks very much. I realized as soon as I posted this thread that it'd probably be sooo much more informative if I posted some photos. :(

    I don't have any photos at the moment, but I'll take some soon and post them as soon as I can.

    Thanks!
