...I own SN 952 and came by it in much the same way at a gun show about four years ago.
Bought two revolvers for 200.00. One was a .44 Colt with an 1851 pattern barrel and a steel frame. Not great condition. The other was SN 952. Also not in great condition.
Had it gone over to the tune of 260.00.
You bought a revolver to be proud of.
To get it for the price you paid, is a bonus.
