Good evening everyone! Today at a military show, I stumbled across a U.S. Navy marked "pre-Victory" revolver in a 1944 dated USN Boyt holster with the modified cartridge loops for storage. The gun looks good to me except for two markings on it that just seem a bit off. So in order to start things off, I will tell you what I think looks good about the gun and then what is suspect or questionable in my opinion. The good: (1.) The marking on the left side of the gun the says "PROPERTY U.S. NAVY" looks real to me as I can see where the letters on the ends of the banner go a little deeper than the middle letters and the shape of the indentation on the letters looks that of a genuine stamp and not a laser engraver. The best way to explain it is it looks like it normal old stamp.
