DescriptionThis is an example of an extremely early Wolverine as it is serial number 006. Whitney Firearms Co. manufactured nearly 14,000 of these pistols from 1955 to 1962. It's built on an aluminum alloy frame with white checkered grips and detachable 10 round magazine. The serial number is marked vertically on the front grip strap. The pistol is left in the bright with nickel finish small parts and is without the usual maker markings, which suggests that the pistol was a test or prototype pistol. This pistol is consecutively serialized to another Whitney Wolverine in this auction.

ConditionFine as showing a series of long grinding marks on top of the frame and some minor handling marks overall. Overall the pistol has a bright appearance with a mottled patina on the back strap. The grips are excellent with overall crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
