CONDITION: Fine, all matching except grips which are numbered 433 and the cyl pin which is numbered 282. Overall retains 25-30% glossy orig blue in sheltered areas with the balance flaked, not worn, to a light to medium patina. Grips show dings & scratches with a deep bruise on left side and retain about 95% orig varnish. Mechanics are crisp, brilliant shiny bore. This appears to be an unfired revolver that has had poor storage. 4-30562 JR337 (3,000-5,000)
