Introduced in 1886. Matching serial numbers on the barrel latch, barrel, cylinder, and right grip panel. Pinned round blade front sight with service rear sight and correct 1 7/16 inch cylinder. This revolver is from the collection of country music icon Hank Williams Jr. and includes a certificate of authenticity confirming his ownership. Also included is the correct model factory pasteboard box numbered "28745", which is just two digits off this revolver. Likely a mix-up that could have occurred at the point of original shipment or once in the initial distributor's inventory if both guns were present at the same time. Provenance: The Hank Williams Jr.'s Collection
Very fine overall, retaining 75% plus original blue finish, areas showing some brown patination, and much of the loss concentrated on the cylinder. The grips have taken on a brown hue, a few minor dings and scratches, and worn but well-defined checkering. The box is very fine with some mild wear. Mechanically excellent.
