Colt 2nd. Model Derringer in .41 rim fire calibre. Nickel finish, rosewood grips. One of 9,000 manufactured between 1870 and 1890.
The finish appears to be an old re-nickel, with approximately 70% + remaining. Barrel address is faded because of a slightly heavy application of nickel plating (See photo). Serial number clear. Action good, bore clean rifling faint but clear.
