New old grips

From a member here at TA I acquired a rarity, at least it is to me. Herrett checkered walnut Shooting Stars for S&W "J" frame square butt. I had never seen them before. Got them last saturday and installed them on a Model 31-1, 4" 32 S&W Long revolver. I love the little guns and the cartridge but the grips are small. What a difference!!!!
The revolver at the right rear, next to the S&W coffee cup is my casual shooter, the other (front) 31-1 is way to nice to field as long as I have my shooter. The left rear is a model 30-1, 3". The Herretts look good and fit me and the gun even better.

Nice grips and even nicer revolvers.

I know next to nothing about .32 S&W Long, so excuse me if this is a stupid question.

Are those cartridges NOS, just old or new? The box and lead certainly do *look* like they have some age.
Those aren't just nice lookin' grips, they are DARN NICE lookin' grips!! :D
The Remington -UMC box of ammunition dates to pre WWII and just shortly after. It is all original...50 rounds and yes the lead RN bullets have a patina. No problem, I'll never shoot them. I cast a lookalike RN and load my own. The 32 Long is probably my 2nd favorite cartridge to load and shoot.

That last photo really shows how crisp the checkering is on the new grips. Nice photos, and nice revolvers!
