Not at all rare but still felt like a piece of history in my hand. My estimator brought this in today. He has been telling me about it for a while- saying he couldn't remember where he left this old pistol he got from his father that he had been given by his grandfather. Well, he finally finds it and brings it in and I get the rest of the story. His grandfather was a police officer in Providence RI in the 30's and this was his PD issue. Original holster and a picture of the officers lined up in front of the station. Pretty neat- to me anyway. The pearl grips are not original but were put on it sometime in the 30's as well. I figured someone else would enjoy the pics.
