Colt Non-Factory Engraved SAAs Description

value depends on when and where the engraving was done. Early "New York" or "dealer" engraved Single Actions done outside the factory were usually shipped from Colt in the "soft" and w/o finish. The majority of these were done in the 1870s or 1880s, and condition being equal, are generally priced at 50% to 80% of factory engraved original specimens if the guns were shipped in the "white" to one of Colt's distributors. 1st Generation guns are attributed to L.D. Nimschke and were manufactured in N.Y. either under contract from the Colt Company or one of the large N.Y. retailers will bring up to 50% more than a standard N.Y. engraved gun. Later guns, well done by a known contemporary artist, are usually priced by adding the value of the gun to the cost of the engraving. Poor execution may actually lower the value of a plain, but original gun, much as refinishing would. The notation of "soft" in the factory records is desirable, since the large wholesalers in the northeast used many of the same engravers as Colt. There are and have been some 20th century engravers who stand out, however, and their work commands higher prices, e.g. Lynton McKenzie, Ben Lane, Leonard Francolini, Mike Dubber, Howard Dove, Cole Agee, Weldon Bledsoe, and David W. Harris - the three latter being famous for their "cattle brand" style of engraving, and Ben Lane for his meticulous duplication of the patterns of Cuno Helfricht, the most famous of all Colt factory engravers.
