Never seen one either but sure looks fine. Hope it shoots as awsome as it looks.

They aren't "rare", but they are considered desirable by some. I'm not one of them, but I tend to stick up for nickel guns, as they get so much disrespect. My nickel Smith 29-3 is the most beautiful gun I own.

Nice car.

Not many made it into the country before the Clinton band. Here is a old ad which shows the various models stating that the "Nickel" would be available in 1994, which is about when importation stopped.
