Manufactured circa 1870, with production numbers estimated at only a few thousand. the barrel is unmarked apart from flourishes of floral scroll engraving, which is also found on the iron frame. It is fitted with a blade front sight and a pair of smooth grips. The serial number, "183", is marked on the top of the frame and the bottom of the barrel where they meet, the right side of the grip frame, and on the inside of each grip. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection
Good, retains traces of the original nickel finish with the balance a smooth grey patina, some scattered light pitting, and mostly crisp engraving. The grips are fine with some scattered hairline age crack and light handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
