I found this old Western at a show sometime ago. It appears to be a W66, but I cannot find one in Harvey Platts book with a wooden handle that has spacers in the middle like this one. There is one listed with a solid Pakkawood handle and spacers on the end on page 163 of Harvey Platts book. It is in the 1959 - 1960 catalog reprint section.
Does anyone know if this is a legit factory handle? It doesn't appear to have been tampered with.

I appreciate any information you could share with me about it.
