Good Morning, I am trying to get some much needed information on 2 guns. The guns are model 1873 Colts but we do not know anything about them as far as the year they were made or where they were made. The first has the serial number HN48785 and the second gun's serial number is 21013SA. I would appreciate any information from anyone. Thank you

Blue Book says 21013SA was made in 1958, a "second generation" Colt SAA.

I cannot find any information on a Colt with HN serial number prefix.
What are the other markings and other description?

That's all the information that I have, is that HN #. I do not have the gun in my possesion. Thanks

Might be some sort of commemorative with its own serial number range.
USFA (not Colt) makes the Henry Nettleton repro and that would fall in the appropriate serial number range. But I can't tell if they give it a HN prefix.

Call back when you can provide full description or picture for positive ID.
