This is considered one of the finest factory engraved Smith's ever produced. Personally, i don't much care for engraved hand guns with the exception of the hand engraved and gold inlaid Colt made for the sultan of Brunei in the late 19th century. If i knew how to set up a poll, i would, but i don't. I searched for the sultans colt and was unable to find it. Here is one quite like it made for JFK who was killed before receiving it, but in that style that i do like, then again i was never a fan of "white guns." A revolver must be blued for me to love it. To me, this is pretty,r than a new pup. Are you a fan of engraving or not?
