Unhappy plum

The receiver is close in color to your toggle train. I've looked up all the characteristics in Gibson, Still, and Kenyon's books and the proofs, numbering, thumbprint, all check out. The barrel and toggle train are a darker blue, while the receiver is a slightly reddish color. (But only in a certain light, it's not glaring, just slightly off from the rest of the pistol.) I'm no expert, but have been collecting 30+ years and know that re-bluing results in less crisp proofs, but these proofs are crisp. I wish I had a smart phone to send pics, but I'm still in the stone age with a flip phone. The pistol was bought online from Legacy Collectables.
