The serial number is on the bottom of the receiver and is repeated on the left of the upper tang, stock inlet, and inside the buttplate. It is fitted with Lyman beaded blade front and elevation adjustable buckhorn rear sights. It is mounted with a finely figured, multi-point checkered forearm and pistol grip stock with a crescent buttplate. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 90% plus of the original blue finish and 65% plus of the vivid original case colors with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina. The wood is also very fine with some scattered minor dings and scratches and a few scattered minor blemishes in the otherwise crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
