Default Hammer Design Question

Are there any of the older SAA type revolvers that have the deep hammer relief as pointed at on this photo of a S&W 57? I know Taurus revolvers and most others use a flatter hammer, but was just wondering if historically anyone did this other than S&W.

Ruger has a Bisley Vauuero model.
