Description: *SN 258860. Cal. 38 WCF (38-40). All blue finish with 4 3/4" bbl, slightly altered front sight and 2-line address with "(BISLEY MODEL) 38 W.C.F." on the left side. Left side of frame has 2-line 3 patent dates with rampant colt in a circle. Ejector rod housing is second type. It is mounted with after-market, deep stag 2-pc grips. Frame, cylinder and bbl have full coverage cattle brand pattern engraving, probably by Weldon Bledsoe. This engraving pattern was originated by well-known engraver, Cole Agee, continued by Weldon Bledsoe and is now carried on by David Harris. The entire backstrap, buttstrap and trigger bow, along with the ejector rod housing are covered with Texas cattle brands. No signature was found in the engraving patterns but it is believed by this cataloger that the work was by Weldon Bledsoe. PROVENANCE: Ted Knee Collection. CONDITION: Fine to very fine. Overall retains about all of its custom after-engraving blue. Grips are extremely fine. Hammer is not solid in safety or half-cock notches, otherwise mechanics are fine. Strong bore with scattered pitting. 4-36600 JR166
