JUSTICE No1

This exquisite Colt New Frontier Sheriff’s Model Revolver is accompanied by a factory letter which verifies its unique features, including the custom serial number “JUSTICE No1” and the masterful work of Colt Master Engraver Howard Dove. It boasts a royal blue finish, complemented by fire blue accents, and a 3 3/8 inch barrel chambered in .38 Special. The detailing includes a flush gold inlay, ‘B’ type American scroll engraving, and a distinguished double ebony presentation case. It was delivered to Universal Firearms Ltd. in Franklin Park, Illinois on September 26th, 1987.

Engraved by the esteemed Howard Dove, this revolver is a testament to his skill, with gold inlaid scrollwork, an engraved pattern between the barrel bands, and a flush gold leaf on the front sight. The frame features raised gold scrollwork with flush inlaid borders, a gold inlaid judge’s gavel on the loading gate, and a Lady Justice motif on the recoil shield. The revolver’s 13 stars and scroll engraving enhance its historic appeal.

Howard Dove’s signature, renowned in Colt and Winchester circles for his one-of-a-kind creations, adorns this firearm. This piece’s association with the Colt Collectors Association and its extensive documentation, including correspondence and original quotes, underlines its significance and the high esteem in which Dove’s craftsmanship is held.

The revolver is in excellent plus condition, with over 99% of the original blue finish intact, minimal handling marks, and crisp details in the engraving. It functions flawlessly, and the case and accessories are also in very fine condition.
