RIA – their description, a bit embellished and quite faded grips –
Excellent. The barrels retain approximately 95% original blue finish with the balance a smooth brown patina. The rear and butt of the frame are a smooth dark untouched “black” toned silver. The left side of the frame retains approximately 98% of the original silver plating, the right side shows 95% plus with the balance having a smooth dark patina. The grips are excellent with a few minor dings and handling marks. The markings are clear. The mechanics are excellent. Writer cannot recall seeing a finer example!
