A piece of history. A Colt sixgun 44/40 made in 1892. This thing was in extraordinary condition, except it looked like the bluing was all weird and blotchy. I asked them why it looked like that, he said they wondered too so they looked it up. It's not blued, the gun was plated in Sterling Silver! What I was seeing was tarnish. Amazing.
