Manufactured from 1868-81 and is very rarely ever encountered with ultra high condition blue finish. The right grip panel is numbered to gun, and matching assembly numbers on grip frame, cylinder and barrel.

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 95% original blue finish mixed with some thinning to brown mostly on the cylinder. The grips are fine with an overcoat of varnish and some minor handling marks. Mechanically excellent. Many serious S&W collectors search a lifetime and never see a Model One 3rd Issue in this high grade condition!
