Description:

This model was only manufactured in 1880-1882. This example has the standard markings (including matching serial numbers), blade and notch sights, fine Germanic scroll and punch-dot engraving by S&W's master engraver, Gustave Young, and smooth mother of pearl grips.

Rating Definition:

Very fine with 98% plus original nickel and casehardened finish, 90% plus original blue and some smooth brown patina on the trigger guard, cylinder drag lines, and minor spotting. The grips are very good and have mild handling wear and small chips at the upper edges on the right. Mechanically excellent. A very rare opportunity to obtain a near mint 19th century Gustave Young limited production/factory engraved S&W!
