COLTS POCKET '49, ITS EVOLUTION INCLUDING THE BABY DRAGOON & WELLS FARGO

ADDENDUM

The author's curse has struck early. Upon receipt of our book I decided to proof read it one more time, even though this had already done many times by several persons. Consequently, I found some minor errors and oversights that should have caught earlier. I apologize for my sins and offer the following corrections:
1.
Page 22. The caption under the photo refers the reader to Item 27, this Item is on page 34.
2.
Page 30. Right column top paragraph last sentence should read: "Type 4 is the only one that exists for all Pocket '49s." This same correction is needed for the caption on this page.
3.
Pages 48 and 51. I claim to give 15 reasons, in Chapter 12 FAKES, to explain why some Rammered Baby Dragoons are fake. Actually I only give 10 reasons.
4.
Page 50. On the first paragraph, lines 7 and 8, the correct measurement is .375
5.
Page 86. Fig 124 has a large IRON trigger guard. Brass ones weren't seen this early.
6.
Page 98. The last completed sentence on the page should read, "Serial number 205979 was produced in 1861, probably shortly before the Civil War which started in April 1861."
7.
Page 113. "Other" grip material estimate in the upper right corner, is too high. Well under 1000 of these were produced.
8.
Page 134. The line immediately above Item 12 in the right column should say "Fig 112, page 77, has photos of the two different US screws."
9.
Page 173. On the bottom of the first paragraph, I refer the reader to Chapter Eight for English serial numbers and inspector marks. Actually they are discussed in Chapter Seven, pages 137-142.
10.
Page 200. On the right column, under The "", serial number 208474 was manufactured in 1861.
11.
Page 233. In Fig 317 the correct date of the inscription is January 1, 1871.
12.
Page 281. The very last line on the page should read:
                       1872 to 1889              262000 to 332993
It is not beyond the realm of possibility that more errors will be discovered. Please forward any that might be found to the author. At some date in the future a revised addendum or second edition may be printed.

Thank you,
Robert M. Jordan

Subsequently, the following changes have been found:
1.
Pages 73,83,84. The first known serial number for a Pocket '49 with Two Line New York Address is now known to be 14454
2.
Page 99. The last known serial number for a 6-shot engraved Hartford should be 205978 [item 5)]. The number quoted, 205979, is not engraved, as shown in its photo on page 101.
