Colt Paterson, Ehler's Belt Model .34 cal. revolver #83.  Five shot, .about .34 cal., Rare late model with attached loading lever and other late features. Overall length: 7”.  Barrel length: 3 ½”. Crisp “Centaur” cylinder scene with a single small area of minor corrosion as shown in one of the photos.  All original and in very fine condition with much of the original brilliant blue finish remaining throughout. Stock retains virtually 100% of the original varnish. Tight, crisp, action and mechanically absolutely perfect in every respect. Overall a superb example of one of the rarest of all American firearms.
