Serial number is 109991 which dates this to 1862 production. Serial number appears on the barrel, frame, trigger guard, and back strap.

Revolver is remarkably complete considering its past treatment. Iron and brass exhibit the nice dark patina of a weathered relic. I do not think this is a “dug” relic; more likely a barn find. The old tag says it’s a barn find from Virginia. Even so, serial numbers are visible, and the Colt name is partly visible. The walnut grips are still nice. There is a hole cut to put a lanyard through the back strap. A great relic gun that still cocks and fires! This Colt Navy revolver is a nice representative sidearm of the Civil War.
