The attached photographs depict a 3rd Model Dragoon dating from 1858. Note the apparent significant depth of the barrel markings. Note also the very weak "A" in "SAML" and the missing top part of the first "S" in "ADDRESS". This suggests the die may have been damaged or worn by the time this revolver was manufactured. Are others able to support or refute this hypothesis?
