Lipsey's 0682 with RSSE- Prefix serial number is coming with fancy grips and black eagle medallions, or plain stock walnut with silver eagle medallions.
Weaselmeatgravy's example of the latter also has the front portion of each grip panel narrowed down at the front to better match up with the cylinder frame, but that also leaves an unusual hole for the medallion, extra wood at the left side of the medallion (on the right grip) and zero extra at the right side of the medallion.
RSSE-0137 has black eagle medallions and fancy grips
RSSE-0143 has silver eagle medallions and stock grips that are tapered down at the front of each panel.

According to the Lipsey’s website:

“The Lipsey’s Exclusive version is an affordable, slightly scaled down version. Production will be 150 with specialized serial (101-250). This revolver features the Tyler Gun Works case hardened hammer and trigger, seamlessly hand fitted walnut grips and fixed sight”

The picture shows fancy walnut with old style black eagle medallions...

Seems to me the -0143 is a screw-up from the factory or they ran out of “hand fitted walnut grips”

The grips were made for this model though, because the front of both panels are tapered down to the frame.
You can tell they started out like a big slab like the other RSSE's and non-engraved.

Got mine couple weeks ago. Got number 34 engraved and 134 lipseys exclusive.

How do the grips on your 134 look?

Chad, there are pictures of it on ruger revolvers only in face book. There is a difference, the grain is not as nice than the engraved gun. Also as described above about trigger and hammer it has a round gate instead of flat gate.

Looks like most of the RSSE overrun guns will have silver eagle medallions.

If anybody wants one of these you better get after it. Just heard the last 20 of the 150 have been shipped to Lipsey's.
Also heard that there are only 20 of the earliest shipped of this 0682 have black eagle grips and probably fancy walnut grips.
The other 130 have silver eagle medallions, and presumably most if not all have standard walnut panels.
Be aware that that one of the 150 was also fitted with some type of oak panels by the grip maker.
