Lot 0150B
Wonderful grouping from the John Wayne collection. The lot includes 2 Smith & Wesson matching .38/44 Heavy Duty (fixed sight revolvers). Serial numbers are 39805, MFG. January 1932 and 39111, MFG. February 1932. Both guns includes Smith & Wesson factory letters which indicate the pistols were purchased in Los Angeles for $21.90 each. Both pistols have scarce 5" barrels with excellent bores. Both retain 98% blue finish and have matching chiseled silver and gold grips with inset rubies. The grips have the initials JW at the top. Both guns cock and lock up tight. The lot includes a hand tooled leather double holster, with silver buckles, and adorned with gold overlay and rubies. There are also a pair of silver spurs with gold floral overlay and a pair of leather stirrups with silver and gold floral panels. An outstanding grouping attributed to the collection of John Wayne.
