Colt Banker’s Special
The Colt Banker's Special was made for army, bankers and postal workers. Based off of the classic Detective Special design, the Banker's Special has about a 1/4" smaller of a frame. Manufactured between 1926 and 1943, the Banker's Special was available in .38 New Police, .38 Smith & Wesson and in .22.
This particular pristine example of the Banker's Special was presented to Massachusetts Governor Joseph B. Ely on February 22nd, 1932. Governor Ely was Massachusetts' 52nd governor and served from 1931 to 1935.
