Frame, hammer and loading assembly retain most of their case colors, though muted and rammer arm is mostly a silver/grey. Cylinder retains about 90% orig finish, mostly bright blue with remainder blue/plum. Cylinder chambers and cylinder face retain most of their orig blue finish. Ormsby Naval battle scene rolled marking is crisp and virtually 100% discernible with only a few minor cosmetic nicks. Trigger guard and backstrap retain silver plating in sheltered areas being mostly a medium mustard patina. Grips are well fit retaining virtually all their orig factory varnish with edge wear and a few light nicks. Mechanics are crisp, bright shiny bore, may be unfired, even though someone played with the gun smashing 5 of the 6 safety pins. 50531-2 (12,500-17,500) – Lot 4236
