RARE FIRST YEAR BOXED COLT PYTHON (1955)
Item Details
Description
SERIAL 559. BARREL 6". CALIBER .357 MAGNUM. MADE IN 1955 Factory shipping letter reads that this gun, serial number 559, was shipped on September 26, 1955 to Charlottesville Hardware Co. in Virginia. Only the 6" blue model was available in 1955. It is the shipping records that determine if a gun was made and shipped in 1955 and this one is totally documented by Colt. These guns are so rare that we could only find one other price realized for a 1955 and it was neither unfired or boxed. This gun shows no cylinder burn, no drag line, no apparent wear of any kind. No edge wear, no nicks, no scratches, nothing. Standard features include vent rib, full lug, target rear sight, six shot, fluted cylinder, wide spur hammer, grooved trigger with type 1 fully checkered gold medallion grips. Bore and action also as new. Proper two piece box is correct with full end label. Includes an original pre zip code warranty card. There is probably another as new boxed 1955 somewhere but we cannot find one. The holy grail for any Python collector. C&R
