    I hope this 1908 isnt refinished.

    Please tell me if it is. I couldn't see any signs. I paid just under $500 with the transfer. No package.

    It appears to be original finish.

    Looks good to me. The CCH is nice enough to indicate little use which coincides with the rest of the finish.

    I'll vote with the others. Very clean, sharp lines, not refinished. It's just a little earlier than mine

    I hope we look half as good when we are 90 years old.

    I cleaned it up a little.
    Even though this isnt a big deal, I'm a little excited because I've never seen one in this condition in person.
    I know a lot of you have them in better condition but this is the best opportunity I've had with a 1908.

    They are indeed exceedingly attractive pistols. Marriage of form and function at its finest. And for me their small size enhances the aesthetic appeal.

    Cleaned up rather nicely, I'd say.

    It is not refinished. And, the grips and magazine are correct.
