The barrel, ejector rod housing and frame all retain about 90% or more strong original blue finish. The cylinder appears to have flaked and is now mainly a smooth brown patina. The revolver wears a nice pair of ivory grips which show nice age and grain. This is a handsome short barreled revolver that functions perfectly. The revolver comes with a factory letter confirming configuration (except for rubber grips) and showing shipment to Hibbard, Spencer and Bartlett in Chicago on August 1, 1889 as part of a fifty gun shipment.
