I have a pistol marked engaged 16 may 1843. Tumbler has sailing ships on it and says PATENT N. The top of the barrel says CONNECTICUT VALLEY ARMS INC. Wondering what the current value of this gun is. It's in very good condition.
Moved you to Other Handguns forum for better results....
Your replica Colt's revolver is worth $150.00 - $200.00
Conneticut Valley Arms (CVA)imported these in the 1970's & 80's (The 1843 date on the cylinder is part of the artwork only) with the majority being made in Italy or Spain.
CVA is still in business, but has switched to making modern in-line Muzzleloaders and no longer services or supplies parts for the reproduction guns.
