Case-hardened hammer and trigger. Oil-finished walnut grips with German silver escutcheons. Made in the 1870s. Approximately 1000 manufactured. Condition: Fine to excellent. Retaining approximately 90-95% finish which has partially turned to a "milky" nickel and showing scattered surface spotting on barrel and lug [see online photos]. Grips excellent.
