I may accept that it's been reblue but not rust the finish is just too smooth mirror finish is a beautiful beautiful gun just odd that it's on the cylinder and Barrel only it was my father in laws highway patrol guide from the early 50's 54 or so have pictures of him sitting on a Harley Davidson a really old a$$ black and white picture ended his career as Highway Patrol captain in California.

Patina might still be smooth. It is slightly different than rust.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patina

From the above link:
Quote:
Often, antique and well-used firearms will develop a patina on the steel after the bluing, parkerizing, or other finish has worn. Firearms in this state are generally considered more valuable than ones that have been re-blued or parkerized. The patina protects the firearm from more damaging rust that would occur were the patina to be polished off.
I honestly have no idea if its patina or something else, but that's just my two cents.

Thanks to all for the fine pictures! Fantastic!
But my question is, why were so many deleated from Photo Bucket and other pictures. Seemed at least at first there were a lot of them. Just didn't know why that happened?

different metals took blueing differntly and would age differently. Nitestalkers answer makes the most sense.
