SOURCE: Colt black powder pistol , serial # 326407.. Con

Serial number comes out to be a colt 1849 pocket revolver made in 1871 values range from around 300 to several thousand dollars depending on condition matching numbers and functionality
The Model 1849 Pocket Revolver, a replacement for the Baby Dragoon, was the most widely produced of any Colt percussion pistol. Nearly 340,000 were manufactured during a 23-year production run that ended in 1873. Although most production took place in Colt's Hartford factory, approximately 11,000 were made in London. These pistols were available with octagonal barrels ranging between 3 and 6 inches in length. The one-piece walnut grips, and casehardened frame, hammer, and loading lever previously featured on Colt's Walker and Dragoon revolvers was carried over to the Model 1849 Pocket, however, the square-back trigger guard was replaced with a round guard, and the engraved cylinder featured a stagecoach holdup scene rather than the Texas Ranger - Indian fight that had been standard on earlier Colts. Approximately 4,000 so-called "Wells Fargo" variants, with 3-inch barrels and without loading levers, were also manufactured

Can you tell me when a colt anaconda serial number MM51530 was made?


http://www.colt.com/Customer-Services/Serial-Number-Lookup

doesn't list the Anaconda for serial 51530. There are some great scanned images from the Colt Catalogue here though and it would be a good place to ask as someone may have the book.
