Welcome aboard. The gun is not in the serialization and identification book and a check of the availability of information for a research letter on our home page indicates there are no records. Please post close-up pictures of your gun here and the experts will give their opinions on condition and value.

The box lock is blues but I feel like originally it may have been case colors, there is nothing to indicate that on the gun, Iíve just seen a few from that decade that were. Hinge pin feels tight, barrel weld is sound all the way down. Appears tight on face but I know thatís hard to tell

Yes originally it would have had case coloring. Many have had it wear away to a gray finish. The lever and the trigger guard should be a different color blue than the barrels.

Mr.Moore,

You'd have better picture quality and get more of a response on your gun's condition & value if you could photograph your VH outside on an overcast day using a red or gray backdrop. The natural lighting will help enhance details that would otherwise be obscured by shadows and glare.

Looks like a very nice shooter to me. Hard to tell on condition of receiver, but fact it has been blued, is not good for a collector value. Do you know what length the barrels are and or what they are choked. That would be fine gun to own and shoot.

More picture and details are needed though for the pros to weign in. Most of those guns had 28 inch barrels and were choked modified/full or even full/full. Could be worth more if it was choked imroved cyclinder/modified but was not honed to that configuration.
