This SAA .44-40 with a .44 spl. cylinder (made in 1992) have great feeling grips but they came with those horrendous bright gold medallions. I replaced them with some older more worn meds. They don't look much different in this light but they are. I darkened the wood a little. But I was thinking about putting a couple worn patina mercury dimes in these or other grips. Originality of the grips don't matter to me. but would these dimes, though larger, look stupid in your opinions? None of the dimes I have are rare ones.
