Metal parts are nicely engraved in fine scrolls with significant original blue finish remaining, and some scattered untouched storage rust. Antique ivory or bone grips are fine, showing average wear and use, and a couple expected age checks, but no significant cracks or chips. Does not function mechanically; hammer will cock like a single action but cylinder does not revolve, trigger will revolve the cylinder like a double action but not work the hammer, also the trigger does not spring forward on its own. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
