Standard Army and model markings on the butt and "R.A.C." cartouche on the right grip, with the left grip dated "1893".

Fine, retains 80% original blue finish with the side plate refinished, the balance a mostly grey patina. The undersize, reoiled grips have some minor dings and dents and lightly visible cartouches. Mechanically excellent. The holster is good with moderate wear.
