Description:

Only 3,035 First Model Schofield revolvers were manufactured, all in 1875. 3,000 were purchased by the U.S. Government for use in the West, 35 were sold on the civilian market. Many were altered and used by Wells, Fargo & Co. This example remains in U.S. configuration. The revolver has "US" stamped on the butt, U.S. Ordnance stamps "L" and "P" on the underside of the barrel lug and rear cylinder face, and matching serial numbers on the butt, right grip panel, and cylinder.

Rating Definition:

Very good plus showing great Western frontier issue type character overall, retaining 30% original blue finish with a smooth gray patina on the balance and grips with a slight chip at the toe (left panel), some high edge wear and minor dings and scratches. Mechanically fine.
