Our Assessment: Made by Colt in 1964 to celebrate the centennial of Nevada’s statehood, this is half of a limited edition set, a Colt Single Action Army, and a Frontier Scout revolver made to commemorate the famous lawman Wild Bill Hicock, with a Nevada Centennial presentation case. The case has some light wear from storage, but the guns are in Excellent condition with just a hint of handling marks in their beautiful finish. From their high-polish metal surfaces to the faux-pearl grips and presentation case, this is a wonderful set of revolvers, sure to turn anyone’s head. Please see our photos and good luck!
