Manufactured after 1865. The barrel rib has the one-line Springfield address, and the underside of the barrel has London proofs. Slight traces of the patent marking remain on the cylinder. The right grip panel is numbered "52346." Matching assembly marks are on the grip frame and barrel. The cylinder lacks a visible assembly mark. The period partitioned case is lined in red wine velvet and contains a cartridge block holding 10 rounds, an additional 50 cartridges held in a modern plastic holder, case key, and brass cleaning rod.
Very fine, retaining 70% bright original high polish blue finish on the frame and barrel with the balance a smooth brown patina. The 70% cylinder is refinished and the left recoil shield has a flattened damaged edge. The grips are fine with high edge wear, minor handling marks, and most of the original varnish remaining. Mechanically excellent. The case is very good overall with a stabilized crack on the lid, minor handling/storage marks, and worn lining.
