Description:

The accompanying factory letter confirms the full silver plated finish and 3 3/16 inch barrel, shipped on April 26, 1860 and delivered to J.W. Storrs of New York City. The right grip panel is numbered to the gun. Matching assembly numbers are on the grip frame, barrel and cylinder. Includes consignor's research file of additional documentation.

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 98% plus of the original silver plating having a wonderfully attractive untouched age-toned darkened appearance. The grips are fine with minor handling marks and most of the original varnish remaining. Mechanically excellent. A high condition, factory documented, full silver plated S&W Model No. 1 2nd Issue Revolver, a seldom ever seen rare variation in the tip-up model series.
