Barrel and cylinder have very sharp edges with nice blue mostly turning to a dark plum. With some speckling of brown stains blending in. Brass is untouched with nice patina. Bottom of the grip strap has some dings. Grips have some nicks and dings. A very old crack repair to the bottom of grips. This is above the average Spiller & Burr found on the market for sale. And would make a fine addition to a Civil War collector or a collector of Confederate Arms.
