IN 98% MINT CRISP CONDITION, WE HAVE A HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER US NAVY ISSUED SMITH & WESSON VICTORY MODEL REVOLVER IN 38 SPECIAL CALIBER WITH THE ORIGINAL USN BOYT 43 SHOULDER HOLSTER AND THE US NAVY MARK 1 KNIFE THAT WAS CARRIED WITH IT.  ACCORDING TO THE SMITH LETTER THIS REVOLVER WAS SHIPPED TO THE US NAVY IN OAKLAND CALIFORNIA ON JANUARY 8, 1943, EARLY IN THE PACIFIC WAR.  THIS WAS CARRIED BY A  HELLCAT PILOT BUT THAT IS ALL THAT WE KNOW.  THIS REVOLVER IS ALL MATCHING INCLUDING THE GRIPS, WHICH YOU HARDLY EVER SEE MATCHING.   IT IS RIGGER MODIFIED TO CARRY EXTRA ROUNDS AS MOST NAVY PILOTS DID. THE REVOLVER HAS A MINT BORE AND HAS NOT SEEN MUCH USE. NAVY VICTORIES ARE VERY GOOD INVESTMENTS AND HAVE BEEN CLIMBING FAST IN VALUE. THEY ARE HARD TO FIND AND WE NEVER GET THEM THIS CRISP. THIS IS THE MOST WIDELY ISSUED SIDE ARM TO THE NAVY IN WW2; JFK HAD ONE ON THE PT109 AND G H W BUSH HAD ONE AS WELL. IT IS ONE OF THE ICONIC SYMBOLS OF US NAVY CARRIER AIR CREW, EVERYBODY CARRIED ONE. THESE DO NOT HANG AROUND FOR LONG THIS NICE.
