    I really couldn't tell ya Coils, but I am trying to get another appraisal from your link..Dixie Gun... and am waiting on a reply. The offer I received was from Mike Simens. Here is some info on his history:

    Another good point in dealing with Mike Simens is that he provides insurance before the item is mailed. He requests a $25.00 check to be sent with the pistol as to cover the shipping cost if it is to be returned to the seller in case there is a disagreement with the final appraisal. If it is to be purchased by him, he will send the $25.00 check back to the seller on top of the agreed price. A pdf Certificate of Property Insurance form can be downloaded by the Travelers Insurance Company via his link. He has insured my pistol for $3,200. There is a strict packaging policy. There is also the option of him selling the pistol on consignment through his website if I feel I need a higher price.
    I looks pretty fail safe, as you know there are a lot of buyers out there with just a p.o.box and a lot of talk in scamming your interests, not being what they portray them selves to be.
    What do you think about this, this is a first time "through the mail" deal for me?

    To me, I'd ship it as a last resort, I'd try to find someone in your area first, but that's the way I'd want to do it. Maybe even an auction house could give you some info or even a cowboy/civil war type forum?

    I don't understand. Why all the worry about what it's worth? You would be a fool to sell it.

    Get some ammo and take it to the range. That's what it was made for!

If any one knows about this pistol let me know, my sidekick wants me to sell it and split the booty.
    It has Rogers & Spencer and UTICAN-NY on the top strap, there are 2 "B"s and the letter "X" stamped on the left grip panel and the serial # 4147 is stamped on the upper side of the forward part of the loading lever, and the # 41 is stamped on the other portion that serves as axis for the magazine.
    The holster has "7 1/2" and the #5 stamped on the belt loop





    Hi
    Is this the same revolver?
