    Overall excellent condition pistol with 90% original blue remaining, showing high point and edge wear. Straw is 80% present slightly more fading on right side. Markings all crisp. Numbers are all matching. Grips are excellent with only minor wear.

Matched number board stock retains most of the original finish and blue on metal attachment piece. There are several surface scratches on exposed side of stock.

Holster retains all original leathers. Finish is very good with only minor scuffing. Some of the straps show wear and age, most notably the stock cover strap which has a couple of weakened creases where it attaches around bottom of holster.

The snail drum is very good with most of the original finish remaining and appears mechanically sound.

The loading tool has very little finish remaining but is sound and functional.
