I have three boxes for my pre 29 guns. I got the guns and the boxes mixed up over the years (guns always stored separately under my watch).
The guns are - 1956/57 (S1662xx), 1957 (S1785xx) and 1957/58 (S179374).
The boxes are labeled in the pictures as 1, 2 and 3.
Box 1 - stippled...
I just found a 99% pre 29 44 magnum with an 8 3/8 barrel nickel. According to the 4th edition of the standard catalog, it might be too good to be true. Any comments would be appreciated and fun while I am waiting for my Jinks letter. The serial number is S154xxx.
