Produced in 1892, as one of the first 100 made.

Rating Definition:

Good as period refinished, with most of a dull, faded blue finish, showing edge wear, mild handling marks and finished over pitting. Stock is very good as revarnished, with some mild pressure dents and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
