The Red Navy Victory

Some Smith & Wesson Victory revolvers bear a US Navy stamp below the thumb piece. Often, this stamp is filled with red paint by the Navy to enhance visibility. Sailors have a habit of painting everything.......

This type of marking has been faked with some regularity by a nefarious west coast seller, claiming they are producing "representative" examples. Such a property mark increases the revolvers market value by double to triple. The only way to be certain such a revolver is actually "Navy" is to get a letter from Roy Jinks.
