Manufactured in 1929. The revolver features a 5-1/2 inch barrel, and fancy pearl checkered grips with monograms on either side. All serial numbers match including the cylinder. The revolver is chambered in caliber .32-20. The top of the barrel is marked with Colt's one line Hartford address. The caliber designation "32 W.C.F." is located on the left side of the barrel. The left side of the casehardened frame has two line, three date patent markings followed by the Rampant Colt. The sides of the hammer are polished; the upper surfaces are blued. The pearl grips are decorated with bordered checkering. The left grip is decorated with a double "C" monogram in a circle. The right grip is inscribed with an elaborate, encircled "CHC" monogram. The grips are not factory but are tasteful and exceptionally well executed. Provenance: The Dr. Robert Azar Collection

Rating Definition:

Very fine with 95% of the original blue and 75% original casehardened finish. The only appreciable wear is in the back strap where the blue is thinning slightly. The attractive period replacement pearl grips are also very fine. Mechanically excellent.
