What is the value of a 1858 Remington 44 Caliber pistol. This gun is in great shape and has original leather holster.

Think in terms of $1500 or so if it has a lot of original finish. A detailed description could get you closer to a specific number.

Could be either of two (or possibly 3) different pistols...we'll need ALL of the writings on the gun to tell. Also a better description of the condition would help in establishing the value.

Remington-Beals Army Revolver...should say "Beals' Patent, Sept. 14, 1858 - Manufactured by Remingtons', Ilion N.Y."

New Model Army Revolver...should say "Patented Sept. 14, 1858 - Manufactured by Remingtons', Ilion, N.Y. - New Model". Early models lack "New Model" markings on barrel.

Value could range from $1000 and UP!

You don't give us much to go on, so I will just give you the book price. If indeed you do have a genuine Model 1858, they are known as the Remington-Beals Army Model Revolver. They were made between 1861-1862 about 1900 were made. The prices for these start at $900 for one in good condition to $3000 for one in like new condition. Military marked revolvers are found in the serial number range above #725. If the revolver has U.S. property marks on it, the price doubles. Now the revolver that I think you have, as they are much more common, and have the same patent dates on the barrel, is the Remington New Model Army Revolver. These revolvers were made from 1863-1875 and about 122,000 were made. The serial numbers start where the Model 1858 numbers stop. New Model Revolvers with military markings start at $650 in good condition to $1800 in like new condition. On the holster, everything depends on condition. If in bad torn up condition or with part of it missing, it is worth nothing. But if it is in good condition and all complete it should be worth about $200-$250. Hope that this is of some help to you.
