Description:

Manufactured in 1911. The receiver features a factory "Grade B" engraving depicting a buck whitetail deer kneeling in a grassy field with his head held high inside a circle panel on the left side and running doe in a field scene inside a circle panel on the right side. The remaining surfaces of the receiver as well as the takedown collar are stippled. It is fitted with a pinned blade front sight and an elevation adjustable rear sight (elevator absent). There is a cocking indicator pin on the upper tang. The deluxe, highly figured walnut forearm and straight grip stock feature fancy fleur-de-lis checking and hard rubber Savage buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retaining 90% original blue finish with thinning on the balance. 60% original case colors remain on the lever. The engraving is crisp. The stock is fine with a few minor stress cracks, missing chip on the forearm, minor-moderate handling marks and chips absent on the buttplate. Mechanically excellent.
