.31 caliber, 4" barrel, S/N 286586 (mfg. ca 1866). Blued and color casehardened finish, silver-plated brass backstrap and triggerguard, varnished walnut grip. One-line New York address, standard frame and cylinder markings. Matching numbers throughout, including the grip, except for the unmarked wedge.
Fine. Retains most of the blue on the barrel with some flaking and thing, frame, loading lever and hammer all with some nice muted case color. Brass with traces of silver, cylinder with traces of blue and strong roll scene. Metal with flecks of surface oxidation and some minor roughness here and there. All markings clear. Mechanically functional, very good bore with strong rifling and some orange surface rust. Grip fine with much of the varnish, showing some loss due to wear a the sharp edges and contact points. Otherwise with scattered light handling marks.
