I came by an 1889/1895 Colt Navy? The question mark comes from someone ground off the butt plate, so true identity gone. What points it toward an 1889/1895, 4 major parts have stars on them, (research tells me, stars indicate factory rebuild). There is a star on barrel, frame, crane, & cylinder. One other ident leans Navy, N.C.T. 1896 on left grip. One other unsual item from the 1892s I have, a serial number on the barrel. There are 2 possibilities, sometime in its history, stolen, or someone trying to pass off an 1892 series as a 1889/1895. The 2nd makes little sense, for a known Army is more vauable then ? Gun is functional, will have to load hallow base wadcutters. Pretty much looks like any in the 1892 series, except in places the should be inspectors inits, there is a star. Not really worth posting a photo.
Thinking about the markings & lack of inspectors marks, 1889 came back to factory for refit, never made it back to Navy, sold on commercial, so buttplate ground off to cover it up.
