serial #69064, .36 cal., 4" octagon barrel with strong rifling but sparsely scattered light pitting or oxidation. This late production series IV revolver remains in attractive condition. The barrel has crisp two-line Newark address and retains about 92% factory blue with loss primarily due to wear and oxidation blemishes mostly on the right side. The five shot ten-slot cylinder has the similar loss in addition to pinprick pitting with the surfaces showing a 50% mottled mix of pewter, purple and blue plus crisp scenes overall with the cavalry-infantry charge slightly light. The frame still has strong swirls of case-hardened colors but is muting to pewter. The loading lever rates about the same as the frame but the hammer has very strong colors partially masked by scattered freckling for about 85% case-hardened colors remaining. The backstrap and triggerguard frame have nearly 97% silver plate with light edge wear. The smooth one-piece factory walnut grips rate very good to excellent with a few areas of flaking finish and wear along the lower edges. All appropriate parts and the grips are correctly numbered to the gun with the exception of the rammer (#8958), the standing breech is not drilled and tapped for a spring plate and the gun remains fully functional. Overall, an attractive Navy with great condition. (88357-8) {ANTIQUE} (1800/2200) SOLD FOR $1,840.00
