About two years ago a friend sold me an early SAA that had been severely buffed/sanded and had been chrome plated. The gun was unique in that it had a '1' below each serial number and it had original one-piece ivory grips (with the SN on the backstrap portion of the ivory grip). I decided to try to salvage the gun due to its early SN and the '1' marking and the ivories. I asked for a factory letter, but was told that the serial number fell in the range where the records had been lost. I asked a friend (Bill Tayloe) who is an engraver to help with the project. Below is the end product. Please comment!
