Description:

The accompanying factory letter lists this revolver with a 5 inch barrel and nickel finish when it was shipped on March 12, 1930, and delivered to S&W Fort Worth, Texas dealer Wolf & Klar as part of a 59 revolver shipment. The revolver features a period retailer zig zag line motif engraving throughout. Motifs include wavy lines, scrolls and Xs. A large floral type pattern appears on the right side of the frame. Matching serial numbers on the butt, cylinder and ejector shroud.

Rating Definition:

Very fine as period Wolf & Klar retailer embellished. 95% plus of the nickel finish remains with mild-minor flaking on the balance. The grips are fine with a minor chip missing near the top (right side), couple hairline cracks, a few minor handling marks and attractive color. Mechanically excellent.
