Provenance: The Paul Crockett Jr. Collection

Rating Definition:

Excellent, with 90% plus of the original blue finish, showing a mixed brown and gray patina on the gripstraps, bright edge/high point wear, mild spotting and light handling marks. The grips are also excellent with some minor dings and stains on the crisp checkering, and the holster is very good with some minor scuffs and cracks, with two holes in the flap. Mechanically excellent.
