Serial Number:
Catalog Page: 39
Class: Antique

Manufactured circa 1891-1892. Produced without sights with the make and model markings on one side and the patent date on the other, checkered grip panels, swiveling safety and a steel firing lever. The matching serial number is on the side plate, magazine and frame.

Rating Definition:

Fine. The pistol retains 80% plus of the nickel finish with some brown oxidation on the squeeze trigger. The grip panels have crisp checkering. The firing mechanism does not "click" and needs work in order to function.
