Yet another Iver Johnson Revolver question
Greetings, You guys have an awsome forum and Mr. Bill Goforth is THE MAN!!!
My Grandfather just gave me his old 38 revolver... I've read the previous tread regarding dates, and I learned alot, but i'd still like to find the actual date of this pistol. Here's what I know...
5 Round, Top Break, Revolver w/ an exposed hammer, (the hammer spring is the coil style)
On top of thew barrel: *Iver Johnson Arm & Cycle Works Fitchburg, Mass. USA* - Bottom of triggergaurd: 76282. - Left side handle strap: G 76282. - Bottom of the handle: Top Line: ( mostly unreadable except for the last 3 digits) ----7,08. - Bottom Line: Pat PE 9/13.
I believe from what I have read that this is a third generation Safety hammer, but any help would be appreciated.
