Description:

Manufactured between 1969 and 1972 and subsequently masterfully embellished with beautifully executed near full coverage floral scroll engraving along with oak leaf designs. The revolver shows matching serial numbers on the frame and butt. The gun is signed "RJS" under the cylinder release, this is very likely the signature of Master Engraver Russell J. Smith, who engraved for Smith & Wesson for many years. Includes a Hunter leather holster.

Rating Definition:

Extremely fine as masterfully upgraded, retaining 99% blue finish, minor handling evidence, and a noticeable spot of dark pitting/oxidation at the top of the back strap. The grips are very fine with a few minor scratches, tiny spots of varnish loss, and sharp checkering. The holster is very good with some wear and verdigris. Mechanically excellent.
