I'll give it a go:

From the top down:

Adress SAM L COLT New -York City
1851 Navy, .36. With that address on the barrel, it's likely a Colt 2nd Generation. You can use the serial number to look it up (Colt's Manufacturing LLC).

Navy Arms Co.
Remington New Model Army (verify caliber) often referred to as the 1858 Remington. Date code looks to be XXII, or 1966 proof/manufacture.

Adress Cimarron Fredericksburg Texas
Colt 1860 Army .44. Is that stainless or "in the white"? Cimarron is an importer of Italian reproductions but I don't see any Italian proof marks.

Adress Col. SAML COLT NEW-YORK U.S. AMERICA
Colt 1860 Army. Looks to be another Colt 2nd Generation - look up serial number.

LONDON
1851 Navy, London model. Not sure if this is also 2nd Gen, because of "London" - anyone know if Colt produced a 2nd Gen London model? (I just don't know.)

The 2nd Generation reproductions are very desirable and sell for $700 and up these days. Ask about boxes, papers, etc.

Good luck!

Here’s a member of the peanut gallery again. I still think the top model is a 2nd gen 1851 and not a Dragoon. It doesn’t look large enough compared to the others, the loading lever is wrong, and it looks like the trigger guard and grip frame are silver plated. I don’t know if this is definitive, but the trigger guard and grip frame on my 2nd gen 2nd model Dragoon aren’t plated.

What is the caliber of the top gun? It looks dragoonis to me. I can’t see the picture really good on my phone. Trying to look at the holes in the cylinder.
