A real piece of american civil war history! The serial number (9333) is matching of the set that was used in the civil war. Beautiful condition with a fully working strong action. The cylinder is removable and very clean, and the barrel lifts and closes tight. The smooth rosewood grips are in very good condition for age. There is good condition finish on the 6 inch barrel and body. On the bottom of the handle is marked the serial number and "GWC" (perhaps the soldier/officer that owned it?). There are full Smith & Wesson markings in the correct places and are very legible. An amazing valuable opportunity to own a slice of the civil war!
