Description:

Manufactured in 1894. Two-line address and "38-55" on the top barrel flat, three-line model/trademark/patent marking on the upper tang, and incredibly low serial number "60" on the bottom of the receiver. Fitted with dovetailed blade front, elevation adjustable buckhorn rear, and tang mounted peep sights. Mounted with a smooth forearm and straight grip stock with a crescent buttplate. "RH BACA/1931" is scratched on the left of the receiver. The included factory letter confirms the current configuration as well as receipt at the warehouse on 24 October 1894, four days after the first Model 1894s were received, and shipment on 27 October 1894. It also lists a return/repair date of 28 March 1898.

Rating Definition:

Very good, retains 20% of the original blue finish, stronger in sheltered areas, with the balance a smooth grey patina and some minor dings in the receiver. The wood is fair with numerous minor dings and scratches, a few hairline cracks, and some absent material around the upper tang. Mechanically excellent. Provenance: The Brandhorst Collection.
