UNALTERED, HIGH CONDITION .455 MARK II, HAND EJECTOR 2ND MODEL REVOLVER, #61XXX, MADE 1915-1917. This is one of the best of these I’ve seen in a long while. It seems most of these have been converted to either .45 Colt or .45 Auto Rim cartridges. It is easy to spot one of these as the face of the cylinder would have been altered and no longer reveal the serial number. The chambers would also have been lengthened for the .45 Colt version. This example is still in .455 caliber and has all matching numbers on the barrel, frame and cylinder. The deep-dish S&W medallion diamond checkered grips are not numbered, but fit perfectly and are no doubt original. 59,150 of this model were manufactured for English service and 14,500 were manufactured for Canadian service. This one shows both British proofs and Canadian proof marks. These small marks are located only on the left rear side of the frame above the grips and one small “crossed flags” stamping on the forward left frame just behind the barrel and on the rear face of the cylinder. Overall, this revolver displays most of the original high polish blue with only some freckling on the back strap, a little thinning on the front strap and some very minor thinning on the right side of the frame around the S&W logo. Grips are excellent, lanyard swivel intact, still some good case color on the trigger and hammer, tight action and minty bright bore.
