These Type III pistols were manufactured c. 1912-1935 and have the "REMINGTON ARMS- -U.M.C. CO. ILION N.Y." address on the upper barrel rib. This one has the standard blade and notch sights, period scroll engraving with textured backgrounds, "M" inscribed in an oval on the sides of the lower barrel (significance unknown), matching serial numbers on the barrel group and frame, pearl grips, and "A.J. PASCHANG" inscribed on the butt. The significance of the inscription is not documented. It is may be related to American Catholic Bishop Adolph J. Paschang who worked in China from 1923 to 1968 as a missionary and relief worker.
Very fine with most of the gold fading to reveal the silver plating beneath which remains 95% complete, crisp engraving, legible inscription, minor flaking, and minor age and storage related wear. The grips are very fine with beautiful iridescent colors and minor handling wear. Mechanically fine.
