All frames for this model were manufactured pre-1899, but finished revolvers were shipped as late as 1913. The revolver features a pinned beaded blade Lyman front sight, an adjustable "U" notch rear sight, two-line address/patent dates marking on the barrel rib, caliber designation marked on the left side of the barrel, and matching serial numbers on the butt, right grip panel, cylinder, barrel, and barrel latch. Pictured in the 4th edition of Supica and Nahas' "Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson" on page 122. This model is seldom found with original target sights. Provenance: The Supica Collection
Very fine, retaining 80% original nickel plating with smooth gray patina and flaking on the balance. 40% original case colors remain on the trigger and hammer. The grips are fine with some wear along the top of the checkering and some minor handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
