A pair of Colts this good is bound to attract its share of attention.
Indeed, this matched pair of factory engraved, silver & gold plated, Civil War-era Colt 1861 Navy revolvers with their presentation deluxe case have been featured in numerous significant books on Colts, and been housed in prominent collections documented back to 1924. The pair is so well known one could readily consider them celebrities in the world of Colt.
It has in spades the trifecta of what fine arms collectors seek: stunning artistry, superb condition, and a fascinating history.
