Manufactured from 1872 to 1874. The revolver has the standard one-line address/patent dates marking the barrel rib, provision for a lanyard ring (filler screw) on the butt, and matching assembly numbers on the cylinder, barrel, and barrel latch (no visible number on the grip frame), and checkered antique grips.
Extremely fine, retaining 85% plus original nickel plating with smooth gray patina on the balance. Traces of original case colors remain on the hammer and trigger guard. The highly attractive grips are very fine with crisp checkering and attractive color. The cylinder does not lock, otherwise the action cycles properly. An exceptional representative example of a S&W No. 3 American 2nd Model Revolver.
