Help on age and possible value
I inherited a .38spl CTG from my recently passed grandfather. I know he was issued it as part of the Civil Defense program. Originally was blued and wood gripped. They allow them to send to S&W to nickel plate and pearl grip for free which did. It is stamped US Property G.H.D. with serial number V 353xxx. Has miniminal scratches. Don't plan on ever selling it as it is a part of history he was a part of as well as sentimental value. What is the age and approximate value? Thanks for reading through the prologue and your time.
