After a long wait, and a few failed sales, I was finally able to acquire my John Wayne. It’s currently next to me in my office among other fun stuff I enjoy.

Congratulations! I have one as well, still in the box with the lever tie, hang tags and papers. My neighbor had it in her closet many years ago, apparently her deceased husband had purchased it without her knowledge (not that that EVER happens, lol). I was fortunate enough to get the leather scabbard and wooden plaque with leather inlay with it. A few years later I acquired two full boxes plus one missing two rounds of the matching W3240JW matching ammo. Cool how the brass is stamped “Duke.”

The leather scabbard has a tiny bit of white mold on it. I haven’t tried to clean it or anything and it doesn’t seem to be getting any worse, but not sure if I should try or even where to begin.

I’ve never much been into commemoratives, but couldn’t pass on this one.

Curious the differences between the different models listed (Mine is SN JW12414)? Honestly, this one went into the back of the safe and I haven’t given it much thought or researched anything about it. Again, not really a commemorative guy but I do like it.

JW  and CJW are identical except for the ser# prefix. The DUKE is antique gold plated ,with fancy walnut stocks and finish,and cased and the JWM and JWDM are a matched pair , engraved 1 of 300 , and cased

Thanks. I did see the gold one in a local store a number of years ago now that I think about it. It didn’t have the case though.

I’m not sure how to clean it either but I would recommend finding out.
