Colt 'Root' sidehammer revolver, barn find.

A scarce Colt sidehammer M1855 revolver, referred to by collectors as the Root for it's designer. I cannot make out the serial number but it's a model 3 or 4 with the fluted cylinder and octagonal barrel.
This weapon is solid and complete, the cylinder turns and the hammer will open fully but will not lock in the cocked position.
The grips are solid with a chip at the base.
Wish there was more history here, but this revolver was recently found in a barn here in South Carolina along with a similar condition 1863 Springfield (which I did not get).
A great display piece for a tough to find weapon!
