There's an early 25 on ebay that has a bright nickel finish. I'm the first to admit my knowledge of the 25 is lacking, but I thought the original Ni finish was done with a black cast to it and that it didn't look similar to chrome. Anyone know if the bright NI finish was used?

I also just saw that one on ebay. Along with the Asking Price. Not sure that was a "Original" Factory Product.

I have one of the first nickel finish model 25 that the black lacquer coating has worn off or been removed. The finish is not bright.  In my opinion that model 25 shown above does NOT have the original factory finish.

With just a quick glance (and not enough pictures) it looks like maybe a 1916 vintage. It is also so very, very clean that it doesn't appear to ever have been handled. I would guess this is a very nice chrome
finish (even the trigger!)--possibly a presentation gun, and not one ever sold for the trade.

Why, I am not an expert, I know a lot about things,nickel plating turns yellow after a few years, I am not even sure when chrome was available, I would guess from my knowledge and just the look it is definitely not original, nickel never looks like chrome!!!
Totally a different color.

Looks like chrome , from what I read Chrome plating became available in 1924 for commercial use.

I have one of the nickled (not tickled) 25's with the black lacquer but most of the black is wore off.
Gun was missing the fromnt sight and in well used/abused condition.

I am guessing someone cleaned this one up by removing all the black?

I have my doubts that its original ! The finish just looks too hard.
