I got this about 5 years ago from my uncle. He got it sometime in the 40's that's all I know about the history of it.
From the S/N I would say it was made sometime in mid 1885.
I would say it has about 95%+ of the nickel still on it and the barrel looks great for something this old.
I'm asking $600 and that is because the barrel looks better than any one of these I have ever seen.
