The serial number is on the right of the frame, the left of the trigger guard is marked "1" over "VP", and the right of the trigger guard is marked "99".

Rating Definition:

Fine, retains 80% of the original blue finish with the balance having mostly thinned to a smooth grey patina, primarily on edges, and a patch of dark pitting on the front grip strap. The grips are also very fine with a few light blemishes in the overall crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
