Thanks to Mike, I've got a new US&S. I'd like to share.
The finish is actually alittle better than it looks in the pics.
(I rushed the pics as I could hear my wife coming home !)

more US&S pics

More US&S pics, including pics of the small "hanging" P on the slide and frame, as well as the barrel bushing.

Nice US&S, congrats.

Try the picts with a white background and see how they look.

I've shied away from a white background, I quess because I thought it would create too much contast and the camera would not open up for the details. Maybe I'm over thinking this.

Or maybe, I'm trying for that dark edgy moody film noir kind of thing..........

The real point I'd like to make is.
I was able to make a well thought out purchase, while out of town and away from my reference library, because of the great guys and information on these forums.
There's nothing like sitting at the hotel's computor, trying to remember the gun you just saw, while trying to remember anything you might know about it, while trying to decide a next move, and then being able to tap into a great wealth of knowledge.

To Mike Radford, CPW, (these two are only the most recent) and all the great GB forums guys I've relied on to help guide my collection purchases.... Thanks.

Regards, Ned

I use a gray background when I take my pictures. Then I sometimes wash out the gray. I woould get better photos if I did not use a flash.

Thanks for sharing the pics, Ned, and congratulations! I must admit to feeling a tiny tug of jealousy ... ;)

Hi Ned, Glad I could help. Gotta say my advice was good as you did very well. No way to go wrong at the price you paid. Bet it would bring at least $2000-2500 on the auction sites.

As I mentioned, you got one of the earliest hanging P guns. Clawson and Karl K say no P till about 1,060,000 with 1060093 having no P. Some overlap per Karl. About 20,000 total with hanging P and yours is stamped at an angle I had yet to see. Even the P on the frame is not level. Cool. Nice pistol. I do not see any thing incorrect.
