That does look odd. I'm not sure if there is a sight groove or not?

If I'm not mistaken, the Marshal had a "trough-type" rear sight. I think the gun is correct.

The "semi-crowned" top strap, where the fixed rear sight is located in a groove running the length of the top strap, has been milled off for some reason! A tiny remainder of the groove shows on the front slope of the top strap.

Wow! Why would anyone do that? Why would anyone pay that kind of money for such a damaged, altered gun? Wow!

Thank you JudgeColt, I was starting to get worried about mine. This altered, wrong grips, rusted was bid close to a grand. What had me worried was that there was 36 bids on it from multiple people. You would have thought someone knew about the top strap. :)
