Contact S&W. The number of 235 is kind of odd. How many mounted patrolmen were there when the commemorative was done?
It could be that a contract was made with an outside vendor to make the commemorative.
If a group of mounted patrolmen commissioned a special run, then the wear could be that one of the group used it as a daily carry.
