serial #8699SA, 45 Colt, 7 1/2'' barrel with a bright excellent, doubtless unfired, bore. The metal surfaces retain, 99% post-engraving rich high-gloss blue, there being one tiny spot which had some surface oxidation on the ejector rod housing just ahead of the spray of engraving. Joe Condon ''Engraver to the Stars'' of Las Vegas Nevada engraved guns for all manner of celebrity from Elvis Presley to Sammy Davis Jr. to Frank Sinatra et. al. The arm is very nearly identical to the preceding revolver with 38 total scrolling gold wire inlays over its surface, exhibiting the same lovely loose open flowing scroll with background punch-dot shading. The right side chiseled gold inlay on loading gate shows a standing cowboy holding lever action rifle with his right hand, the left side recoil shield gold inlay with a cowpoke holding his saddle, right hand on his ten gallon hat. The grip is also one piece AAA grade American walnut with a beautiful low luster finish, rating excellent with few very minor handling marks from the years. The revolver is absolutely unturned, un-fired since leaving Mr. Condon's hands and is numbered consecutively to the previous lot in this sale. A sublime pair of Single Action Armys.
