    We need quality photos to help you. Their are instructions in a "STICKY" on our header page for posting photos. Your serial number doesn't seem valid for a Army Special Colt though. The serialization for Army Specials was a continuation of the older New Army and Navy Models. It would have been much higher then 11673, unless someone in the far distant past rebarreled a older NA & N with a Army Special barrel.

    EDIT #1, The barrel marking for the Colt Army Special revolver is shown in this photo, that I got off the net. It would have been made after 1907, with a much higher serial number then your revolver has.
