I noticed before how the dates and rampant seem to fade (buff). I just thought maybe error when machine pressed? Not sure about address, and grips could be custom made by other? Do all factory grips have the medallion? I have not attempted to take grips off to check under cause don鈥檛 want to damage. Thoughts? Should I? Thanks for response.

If mine mind you . I would have to look under the hood so to speak by carefully taking the grips off . I don't know for what good that would do but that's just me .
I do see dings and scratches on the grips and possibly wear to the screws . Being carful , I'd dive in . Grips off for the photo shoot may even help .

Alright gents I get it! Haha, the storekeeper model I should have looked at a little closer and I probably paid more than double maybe even triple than what it鈥檚 worth (7,500.00) but I also bought 16 other guns at same time. Sorry! Hahaha. So with all this being said鈥.. should I list it for what I bought it for or just take the gun back to shop I bought from, RE sell to them and eat the 30%? After reading all these I鈥檓 kinda thinking eating the 30% would be best option or putting on consignment hoping that someone else like me walks through shop and just says鈥.鈥漮k I鈥檒l buy that one also鈥
If you try selling on Gunbroker , their fees are reasonable and by chance there is a no sale you will have no fee applied . Your phone pictures are good enough for a sale , maybe just take more for the add .

Gunnar , The above poster seems to have good leads for your need and in a round about helps more than just you .
I'm not that up on engraver technics but have a question about the storekeeper . In the one photo of top center backstrap , post 7 picture 5 , is the center cut ( start of scroll ? ) uncomfortably deep or does that cut blend in to a shade up pattern to blend in ? Odd try at a curios question I know . You have the better look in your hand .
