Description

This pair of Colt Single Action Army revolvers, crafted in 1986 and issued in 1987, is a limited edition set designed exclusively for the associates of First Bankers Friends in Pompano Beach, Florida. Each revolver, one chambered in a .45 Long Colt and the other in .44-40 Winchester, is marked with serial numbers FBF-008 and 008-FBF, respectively, symbolizing their exclusivity within the 45-unit series.

Meticulously hand-engraved by artisan Ben Shostle of Muncie, Indiana, these firearms feature intricate scrollwork complemented by elegant gold line detailing at the muzzle and base of the barrels, alongside dual gold bands encircling the cylinder’s end. The First Bankers’ emblem is prominently displayed in opulent gold atop each grip, with the organization’s name etched along the barrel’s left side and three gold stars affixed to the underside of the grip.

The revolvers bear distinctive characteristics; the .45 LC boasts a modern smokeless action fitted with rosewood grips and a contemporary barrel inscription. In contrast, the .44-40 is adorned with a traditional black powder frame, walnut grips, and a vintage-style barrel address.

Accompanying these revolvers are bespoke quartered oak display cases, each inscribed with “THE FIRST BANKERS,” the respective caliber, and the Colt brand. Lined with sumptuous red velvet, the cases house a gold-plated cartridge and a matching First Bankers commemorative medal. Also included is a collection of documents detailing the revolvers’ conception, assembly, and sale, alongside original Colt paperwork and keys.
