The included factory letter is listed as having a 7 1/2 inch barrel chambered in .44 special with blue finish, stocks not listed, and grade "D" engraving when shipped to Cherry's Sporting Goods Company in Geneseo, IL on February 16, 1979 as part of Colt factory order number 10723. The near full coverage grade "D" engraving features broad floral scrollwork. The left side of the grip frame is marked "COLT ENG". Includes a Colt presentation case.
Excellent overall, retaining 99% plus original blue finish and case colors with minimal handling marks and crisp engraving. The grips are ill-fitting replacements. Mechanically excellent. Case is very fine with scattered light storage and handling marks.
