Description: serial #84921 all matching including wedge, .31 caliber, 4" octagon barrel with two line New York address and a very good bore. This little revolver has condition galore. The barrel and cylinder retain 95% strong original blue finish with an extremely crisp cylinder scene. Safety rests on rear of cylinder are intact. There is only slight, very minor flaking on the cylinder. The frame retains about 90% original color case-hardened finish which remains bright in some areas and has faded to a German silver color in other areas. The brass gripstraps retain 98% plus original silverplated finish which is beautifully tarnished. The one piece walnut grip rates excellent plus with virtually all of its original finish remaining and hardly any handling marks. The loading lever screw and the wedge screw have slight slot damage. This is a stellar pocket that really should be married to an original mahogany casing. Investment grade. (15662-11) {ANTIQUE}
