    Just returned from a visit with Ollie,I believe the mystery is solved.He is satisfied the gun came from the factory as I have it now.If he reads this
    he can say how satisfied he is in that regard.Thanks Ollie it was a pleasure meeting you and learning a thing or two.

    It was a pleasure meeting you and your wife as well! I looked over the gun really good, and the finish is no doubt factory original nickel. Took the side plate off to check the serial number, and it matches the frame. The crane fit is perfect and there are no signs of retrofitting, just the usual marks from factory fitting. Making a replacement crane fit that well and blend in with the frame contour would be darn near impossible without disturbing the frame finish in the process, so everything I saw indicates a factory mistake.

    Ollie I have a few pictures and a story:

    Recently a friend showed me a gun with the following story.In 1934 his grandfather was killed in a truck accident.In his pocket they found this gun.It has been in the family since.My limited research ability tells me that it was made between 1899 and 1907.I have seen a few on line but none in this shape
    If you are so inclined take a look,I would be very interested in your thoughtsIMG_2112.JPGIMG_2113.JPGIMG_2115.JPG

    I'm certainly not an expert on the early revolvers, but I believe it's a renickel. IIRC, they came with case hardened details from the factory, and some parts look a bit "buffed out". Nice gun though, wouldn't mind having one.
