MERWIN, HULBERT & Co., 1st MODEL " POCKET ARMY" 44/40 in BLUE !!! Factory PEARL Grips, and more !

This is an extremely EARLY example into production, as it is a 3 digit Serial Number, 18X. Beyond that it was a factory BLUE finished revolver, and fitted with Pearl grips. The significance of this is, ONLY 2% of all calibers, all models were ever finished in blue. Basically due to the perfected nickel plating process H&A offered, nickel was the 98% finish for all Merwins'. Being so early into production blue was used. Currently this Pocket Army has about 7-10% original blue visible. However, the balance of finish is a blue gray patina, which shows it was blue. Also slightly mixed in is the oxidized blue, a.k.a. Plum Patina. Case colors can easily be seen on the hammer and trigger guard, plus nitre blue on the trigger. ALL factory applied markings are clear and present, PLUS ALL Assembly Numbers 127 are matching. ALL parts are original to this Merwin, to include the Pearl Grips.
