Wow, that's quite interesting.
Hey S&W enthusiasts,
This is naiewb from the great state of Georgia. I recently inherited what I, a newb to the extreme, believe to be a pre-war, pre-model 10 renickeled from an originally blued finish. Maybe y'all can help me date and value this piece of history.
First off, Welcome to the forum. I'm certain we can get your questions answered pretty quickly.
Do us a favor so we can get you the info you're looking for.
The serial number is on the bottom of the butt. Post it, but x out the last number or two.
Remove the grips and look for a star stamped on the side of the grip, usually near the base.
If it's been re-nickeled the original value has gone out the window. Maybe $250 -300 in good or better condition. If the nickel is excellent, maybe $350.
Open the cylinder and look carefully in the ejector rod housing for a stamp of the letter "N". If the N is there it was an original nickel finish.
Please post some clear and sharp photos of your revolver.
Photo's are not only desired for us to see your shooter, but we will get a much better indication of it's condition, and we'll be able to give a better estimate of value.
Teach them the truth, and let them sort thru the cobwebs of liberalism that have infested their minds.
When the time comes that I don't want a new gun, call the undertaker!
When they come for your guns, give them the ammo first!
