serial #20215, 32 Teat-fire, 3 1/4" barrel with a fair bore showing moderate oxidation and some strong rifling throughout. The barrel and cylinder of this revolver have been cleaned to bare metal with the barrel address no longer visible, faint remnants of markings on the cylinder, spots of old pitting here and there, some light oxidation and scattered scratches. The brass frame retains some strong remnants of gold wash mingling with ocher brass throughout along with a few spots of light staining and small dings. The hammer is mostly a dark gray patina and the frame is embellished with foliate scrollwork and punch-dot shading. The smooth walnut grips are stamp-numbered to the gun and have been painted white showing some small dings and light crackling. The wedge is un-numbered and the remaining serialized parts are all matching by assembly number. The mechanism functions very well with excellent timing and lockup just a little loose. Still a good example of these popular revolvers. (138750-17) {ANTIQUE} (500/700) SOLD FOR $517.50
