FEB. 17. JULY. 11. 65 & AUG. 24. 69. RUSSIAN MODEL" flanked by Maltese crosses. The rear face of the cylinder, barrel latch and barrel are marked "984".

The serial number and "SH" inside a diamond are marked on the butt. The right grip panel is numbered to the gun. Nickel plated with casehardened hammer and trigger guard.

Rating Definition:

Excellent. The revolver retains 97% untouched original nickel finish showing very minor flaking on the cylinder face. The hammer and trigger guard retain 90% original "frosted" case colors. There is minor pitting under the grips. The grips are also excellent with the retaining pin making a hole all the way through the right panel and some scattered minor handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
