This is a Civil War Starr D.A. Model 1858 with serial number 20279 and is all matching numbers. This was made about 1861 and retains 60% blue and has two nice inspectors cartouche on both sides of the grip. The mechanical function is very good, crisp and tight. The bore is very good, bright and shiny with strong rifling. There were a total of 23000 made and most were made for the U.S. Government. The left grip just at the rear of the trigger guard has a pea sized chip missing. No cracks or other damage. There are inspector marks on most all of the parts.
