Default Baby Russian Nickel Engraved

Picked this one up in Reno. Lately I have been into antiques and engraved. As a collector, I'm programed (hardwired) to think on one level condition first. Regardless, I think some of these era guns are super interesting. This one I forgave condition for engraved. I firgure nickel has a hard time lasting over 100 years.

What is TLC ?
I too have an engraved Baby Russian with a dark grey patina, and I've never been able to determine if it was initally blued or nickeled.

Patbar, TLC is another American slang abbreviation for "Tender, Loving Care." (attention excessive in French)
