Manufactured in 1954/55 per the original S prefix serial number. The revolver was subsequently engraved and gold inlaid by Master Engraver Angelo Bee. When the revolver was embellished the original serial number on the butt was removed; however, this original serial number (S130916) remains on the cylinder. The barrel features a gold inlaid band at the muzzle and at the frame, the latter of which continues onto the ejector hood, and gold inlaid barrel markings, as well as floral scroll engraving with a punch dot background. The frame and cylinder, both of which feature near full coverage floral scroll engraving, have gold inlaid borders. A gold inlaid bear can be found in a woods scene on the left side of the frame while the right depicts a mounted cowboy lassoing a horse in a desert scene, both horses and the cowboy are gold inlaid.
Excellent as subsequently embellished by Master Engraver Angelo Bee, retaining 99% plus refinished blue finish with minimal minor handling marks and crisp engraving. The barrel finish turned plum. Grips are also excellent with the slightest fine age cracks on the bottom of the left grip panel. Mechanically excellent.
