Smith & Wesson
Double Action 4th Model .38 S&W
Nickel, original box
Year: 1896 Estimated value: $1,200.00
This one comes with its original box, numbered to the gun. The gun, dating to about 1896 is in nickel finish, a 5-shot, .38 S&W caliber top-break revolver. Note the blue triggerguard. Nearly all nickel finished early S&W revolvers will have a blued trigger guard. Barrel length is 3 ¼”. This one shows some light pitting in the finish and inside the barrel, but not too bad at all considering it was used during the black powder era. All numbers match.
