This is a decent very early Second Model 38 S&W revolver with serial number 7969 and was made about 1879. It has a 3.25” barrel and retains 82% original nickel finish on the left side and 75% on the right side. The mechanical function is very good crisp and tight. The bore is very good bright and shiny with only a small amount of corrosion or frosting. This is matching serial numbers and the grips have sharp checkering with no chips or cracks.
