The thinning has produced a somewhat plum finish with a slight loss of finish at muzzle from period use. The extra high polished receiver offsets the factory engraving wonderfully. Has typical finish loss on high points of receiver and bottom of receiver in the SN area. Case color still is evident on lever in the more protected areas, but bottom and inside of loop have somewhat silvered. Buttplate is void of any finish. 2-pc deluxe walnut stocks are in very fine condition with numerous small period scratches and slight bruising. Checkering is still sharp and complete and wood still retains much orig finish with slight darkening at wrist. 50506-60 TDW (5,000-8,000) C&R – Lot 4184
