Re: Iver Johnson Revolver Questions
Thanks very much for the information. The mismatched serial number did seem suspicious. What is puzzling is that since the case hardening on the trigger, hammer and latch is bright and clear, and the bluing on the trigger guard does not look like a hot dip job and all the edges and lettering are very sharp...it seems like someone would have gone to a lot of trouble to refinish something that isn't worth it. I guess anything is possible.
Do you know what process Iver Johnson used in 1913 to blue the trigger guards?
