I've noticed that on the hand printed label used on the older 1970's 2 piece S&W boxes, I have seen in the FIN location both B and BT for a blued revolver. Is there a differance?

B indicates S&W standard blue finish, whereas, BT indicates a bright blue finish. Price lists often list the finishes available as blue (B), bright (BT) or nickel (N).

BH is the designation for the satin blue finish given the Highway Patrolman. The finish was unique to this model. Some cylinders fitted to the Highway Patrolman have an H stamped on their rear surface indicating the cylinder was given the satin blue finish.
