Based on serial # manufactured in 1902 - barrel and frame serial #s
All in all in pretty good share for 111 years old.
Serial #s are intentionally blacked out - we do not show serial #s.
There is a couple nicks on the frame where the barrel fits - someone had a problem putting together.
Chamber and bore look excellent.
See blueing is thinning on the barrel over the Winchester stamp on the arm.
See blems on top of barrel - looks like scratch on left top.
