The straw parts have faded. The nickel with wood base magazine is numbered 3722l with a + below. The checkered walnut grips are very good with very good checkering. The checkered walnut forearm is very good. The buttstock is fine with sharp checkering, a steel buttplate, and attaching iron numbered 6295d. It has very few use/storage dents and dings.
