MHG894 JOSEPH ELLS FIRST MODEL DOUBLE ACTION BAR HAMMER REVOLVER; 28 caliber 5-shot. Original grips show some wear but are generally very nice. Marked on the hammer is “Ells patent 1854, 1857”. This is a first model with the flat side frame. 3 inch octagon barrel. Very nice mechanical condition. Nipples-see photos. Good markings. Nicely engraved on the receiver. Good traces of blue in protected areas. Metal is sharp with good corners. I understand they only made 100 first model flat side’s.
