From what I can see of the engraving, it's not a style I would associate with factory work. It does not match the engraving styles pictured in the S&W catalogs at the time this gun was made. The grips are not Ropers, as the back sides do not have the jig notches Roper used to hold the grips while doing the checkering. Ed.
