RR Auction Merwin Hulbert and Company Medium Frame Double Action Revolver

RR Auction Merwin, Hulbert and Company Medium Frame Double Action RevolverMerwin, Hulbert and Company Medium Frame Double-Action Revolver with extra factory barrel and the original box. #8452, cal. .38 centerfire. The five-shot cylinder and both barrels have matching numbers. One is 2.75″ and the other is 5.5″, both bores have good to very good rifling with some fine corrosion. This variation has the folding hammer spur marked “Pat’d/Jan. 27, 85.” The revolver with the longer barrel installed retains over 90% original nickel-plating with most of the loss in several of the cylinder flutes and several small areas of fine corrosion along the left side of the barrel rib. The shorter barrel retains 98% original nickel- plating. All factory lettering is in excellent condition. The blued trigger guard shows light wear on the sides, the checkered hard rubber birds-head grips have a hairline crack on the top left side and are otherwise in excellent condition. The original dark brown cloth-covered pasteboard box has illustrated instructions printed inside the lid. The box has a pencilled partial serial number remaining on the bottom. The box is worn and has old cellotape repairs, however the cloth cover and printed instructions are intact and a skilled ‘boxman’ would make this somewhat tender box much more serviceable.
