Agreed. I’m not as knowledgeable as others but there’s something definitely different about the side plate and the verified stamp. My initial reaction is the side plate was re-blued or, worse, not original. Looks nothing like my ‘78 6 inch Python, ‘81 NIB 8 inch Python Target or ‘81 8 inch Python 357. I would run the other way unless someone could educate me on the significant difference in the bluing.
