The serial number is marked on the left side of the grip frame and bottom of the barrel. The left side of the frame is marked "41CAL C" for centerfire. It is fitted with a pair of smooth grips.

Rating Definition:

Fine, retains 60% plus of the original blue on the barrel and 50% of the original case colors, the balance a smooth grey patina. The cylinder shows a mixture of refinished blue and grey patina. The attractive grips are very fine with a few scattered hairline cracks and otherwise minimal handling marks. Mechanically excellent. The case is very good with some light handling/storage evidence.
