All matching numbers including grips. Forcing cone is perfect on the 3 1/2" barrel. Nickle has light scratches... Chip out of 1 grip as shown. Hammer & trigger show nice case colors. Caliber is, of course, 22 S&W

I haven't lettered it yet. Likely 1909 ship date. No sign of a refinish. Less than 100 miles from Springfield. Not bad for over 100 years old.

I'm about 5 steps beyond envious. I've been looking for one of those for nealy 2 years now. Every one that I've located has the forcing cone blown out. Yours is the first one I've ever seen that has an intact barrel. I won't even venture to guess what that tiny little Ladysmith is worth today.

Congratulations on such a fine acquisition. and thanks for sharing it with us.
Your revolver is more rare than a K-32 Masterpiece.
