Standard three-line upper tang marking and the serial number is on the underside of the receiver.

Rating Definition:

Very fine. The barrel retains 95% original blue finish with some muzzle and edge wear, and some areas of smooth gray patina. The receiver retains 50% plus blue with most on the left side. The wood is very excellent with a few minor dents and scratches. The markings are clear. The action is fine.
