Elliots patent December 12th 1865. The two line address denotes that this Remington is an early production model. Nickel plated frame with wooden grips.

It was also well liked by women who wanted an easily concealable gun that could fit in a fur muff or handbag. Out in the wild west, they filled the need of gamblers of the day and gunfighters who needed a backup hand gun. It was easy to employ from its hidden location in a boot top or vest pocket.
