The left side of the frame has the Rampant Colt trademark surrounded by a stylized "C", with "R.A.C." inspector initials and "F.B." on the right side. The butt is marked "U.S./ ARMY/ MODEL/ 1909" ahead of the lanyard loop and "No. 35907" behind it. Smooth two piece walnut grips with "R.A.C." stamped on the bottoms. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection

Rating Definition:

Excellent. The revolver retains 95% plus of the bright original high polish finish with handling and storage marks. The barrel has areas of flaking on the top and left side and a ding on the left side towards the muzzle. The grips are very fine with handling and storage marks. Mechanically excellent.
