Smith & Wesson No. 1 3rd Issue 22 Tip-Up 3-3/16”

This S&W model 1 is a 3rd issue variant featuring a 3-3/16” ribbed barrel with three patent dates, bottom break tip-up opening, spur trigger, bird’s head grip and rosewood grip panels. The serial number is 29100 and both the barrel and cylinder are marked “3F”. It retains about 20% original blue with the balance being nicely blended brown and gray patina while the bore is only about 10% lightly pitted with good strong rifling and the grips are completely sound with thinly scattered light handling marks. The action works perfectly and frame and cylinder lock-up are only slightly loose. A very nice example of a defense pistol that was made around the time Lincoln was going to thumb his nose at the Constitution and Supreme Court and invade the South to rob it.
