Colt Brevette   Colt Brevette
This little beauty is from the famous Stagecoach Museum Gun Collection and is shown in their book on page 90 number #495. The gun was made by N. Gillon in the late 1850's under  the Belgium patent of Aug. 21, 1849 taken out by Col. Colt  for their liscense to mfg. these guns. N Gilon and L. Ghaye are the two most recognized for making guns under that liscense. This gun is in near mint condition and does not appear to have been fired.
