Blade front and "R" marked Buffington rear sight, with "V/P/(eagle head)/P" and "A" stamps on the breech of the barrel, "SWP/1889" cartouche on the left of the wrist, circled "P" at the trigger guard tang, and a "U.S./MODEL/1884" marked low arch breechblock.

Fine. The barrel and barrel bands retain 85% plus original blue finish. 50% of original blue finish remain on the lock assembly and buttplate. The hammer has an aged dark appearance. The trigger guard retains 95% original blue finish. The breech block has faded to a silver-gray with strong original case colors on the underside. The stock is fine with initials hand marked ahead of the crisp cartouche and some minor handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
