Very good overall condition, all matching. Everything normally Serial numbered is numbered and numbers all discernible. Numbers are found on barrel, arbor, frame, trigger guard, backstrap, loading arm, latch, wedge, cylinder and penciled inside grips. Maker’ mark is especially crisp and discernible. Metal is grey/plum, smooth overall with traces of original finish in protected areas and scattered areas of staining and pitting. Grips are sound and well fit with light edge wear, hand worn patina, small chip on inside left toe. Good mechanics, clean, crisp bore with light pitting. This revolver has had several professional conserved screws and the latch is an apparent restoration though properly numbered.
