A unique vertical "border line" is stamped after the barrel address (a factory error).

Rating Definition:

Excellent. The revolver retains 97% original blue finish with some minor muzzle and edge wear and thinning on the back strap. The frame retains 85% original case colors with areas fading to a smooth gray. The grips are excellent with a couple minor dings and crisp checkering. The markings are crisp and clear. The action is excellent.
