Manufactured from 1868 to 1881. Featuring a fine, extensive L.D. Nimschke-style New York scroll engraving with kidney-bean motifs in the center of the scrollwork on the barrel sides. Matching assembly marks on the grip frame, cylinder and barrel. The rosewood partitioned case contains a box of UMC .22/100 cartridges with green label, with 24 rounds inside.

Rating Definition:

Excellent as New York engraved, retaining 98% original nickel finish with very minor flaking on the cylinder. The engraving is crisp. The original case colors on the hammer have darkened with age. The pearl grips are also excellent with minimal handling marks and fiery colors. Mechanically excellent. The case is fine with some minor handling/storage marks and some typical high spot wear. An exceptionally attractive Model No. 1 3rd Issue waiting to be added to your S&W collection.
