Item Description: Translate description
serial #40075, 22 RF, 3 3/16" ribbed round barrel with a fair-good bore showing scattered pitting and good rifling throughout. The metal surfaces of this revolver show some light period embellishments with foliate scrollwork and punch-dot shading on either side of the frame and barrel along with some tasteful geometric borders. The engraving is somewhat softened beneath the nickel plating, the finish perhaps reapplied during the period of use retaining about 90%, with flaking and minor pinprick pitting along the cylinder, breech and muzzle. The barrel address remains crisp and clear and the hammer shows a dark tarnished silver finish. The revolver wears a set of attractive period mother-of-pearl grips that have been scratch-numbered to the gun and are engraved with a wide checkered pattern along the right grip and a deer standing amidst a woodland scene on the left. The grips rate very good plus showing a small repair at the base of the right panel and some other light handling marks. Barrel-to-frame fit shows a little bit of play and the action is functional with loose lock-up and good timing. The included original gutta percha case rates very good showing a number of light chips around the edges of the lid and base, a series of neatly repaired long thin cracks along the lid and the molded motifs remain intact and attractive. The interior is lined with embossed maroon baize that shows a few spots of light staining and scuffs. The case also contains a selection of vintage cartridges in very good condition. A very nice ensemble for the Smith & Wesson collector. (13B9474-26) {ANTIQUE} [Dr. John W. Hall Collection] (1800/2200)
