They spelled his name wrong?
Good Catch, Yul Brenners name was spelled Brynner ????? It is engraved correctly on the revolver backstrap but the card is in error. The same goes for the spelling of Eli Wallach on the card and the plate on the display case .....
And it is spelled Wallach.
Looks like the grips have them correct!
Very nice gun with quite an interesting history.
Thanx and I wish I had done more homework on the card before posting .... please excuse the goof!
Any other providence? Photos, letters, articles, etc?
Sorry, there is no other documentaion, though after doing a Google search, the same Colt does show up at a couple of Auction Sites. Wish there was more to make available to you. The serial number is 125301 and dates to 1888. You might Google the serial Number.
