True, but I"ve had one of those, as well as the 2 1/2".
Hey! Mine too! They're so gorgeous.
For real ones, it would have to be a 3" Smith model 64-5 from the brief 18 month period where Smith was cutting grooves in the backstrap/frontstrap of the 64s, a feature usually reserved for it's more upscale brethren. They have a MIM trigger and rebound slide, and the new-style cylinder release, but a forged hammer. I've got a 4" one with a flash-chromed factory-bobbed hammer and I would love to find its little brother.
OH OH if I only knew thats what you wanted !
Pat I have there anniversary issue in .45 Colt I am putting up on the block pretty soon , it has the book, and is as new in case with goodies ,only fired maybe 24 rounds in 30 years. The gun is heavily oiled in my picture so blue appears smudgy but is Python brite ! It IS pinned and recessed !!!! Lets see if I can find a picture. I am not doing it right away and expect to get about $1700 if I sell it in Calif. Maybe in May. It never left my Calif safe so.....
Here is one on Gunbroker so I think $1700 in California where only can get it person to person at FFL is about right
I will mail to an FFL for $1700 + shipping , I am NOT an FFL tho.
It is uncommon to find a recessed cylinder on a non-magnum or rimfire. Nice revolver!

Something completely homemade.
Swapped some old Hogue grips on it.
Took it out with my Standard Manufacturing 45 Colt. Both shot well.
But I own it now (along with serial numbered box and all paperwork and accoutrements), so doesn't qualify per the OP's instructions. My current "Holy Grail" is this....
One of the best lookin' revolvers ever made, IMO. Congrats, Great Scot .
