Bryant Ridge's Analysis:
The Agent was basically the early Cobra, only made with a special short grip frame.  The Agent was intended to be a highly concealable undercover revolver with a minimal grip to aid concealment.
It was available in blue or nickel finish, and in .38 Special.  The blued guns had blued steel parts and blue-black anodized aluminum frame and cylinder crane.
In 1982 the Agent finish was changed to an unpolished flat matte black.
Barrel length was 2 inches.
Grips were checkered walnut made to slightly overlap the bottom of the short grip frame, or smooth wood.
The First Issue model
This had the same thin barrel and exposed ejector rod of the Cobra and Detective Special of that era. It was first issued in 1955 and made until 1972. In 1966 Colt changed all "D" frames to the same short grip frame as the Agent in order to simplify production. After that, the Agent was the same gun as the Cobra, only with the Agent barrel stamp and using a shorter wood grip.

The condition is what we believe to be phenomenal, showing no evidence of regular consumer use or handling that we can see whatsoever.
