This pistol is truly a work of art. The engraving is very attractive and consists of acanthus scroll patterns along with grape leaf scroll and ‘Lady’ motif DeGress ‘Tiffany’ patent grips. The left grip has the patent date Apr.-28 -74 . The silver finish is still present on 90- 95 % of the pistol and tarnishing black in the protected area’s . A hard gun to find especially in this condition!
