serial #1174, 41 RF, 2 1/2'' barrel with a good bore showing scattered oxidation and strong rifling. The metal surfaces of this standard production pistol retain about 75-80% silver finish thinning to ocher brass along the frame and dark gray patina along the barrel with scattered scratches and some moderate dings on the bottom edges of the frame. The barrel address markings are rather soft but visible and the patent markings on the bottom of the barrel are just barely visible. The pistol is embellished with standard factory foliate scrollwork, punch-dot shading and arrows on either side of the barrel. Barrel-to-frame fit shows a little bit of play and the hammer functions crisply. (138931-159) {ANTIQUE} (600/800) Sold For 747.50
