Smith & Wesson commissioned Alvin White to engrave this 44 Magnum and it was to be used as a display revolver in the factory collection. It was shipped to him "in the white" in May 1958 for engraving and gold/silver inlay and returned to S&W for finishing. The rosewood stocks were engraved (carved) and inlaid with ivory diamonds by Mr. White. The grizzly bear is on the left side of the revolver and a bald eagle in flight is on the side plate. This is certainly one of Mr. White's best works.

Don't care for this one.

It's subjective.
