    29 Questions

    I have a model 29 no dash, with a box, my question is the box original. There is no serial number on the box and only has Smith and Wesson on the box.

    Check the bottom of the box for the serial number of the gun written in white grease pencil. Sometimes a flashlight or digital photo will help you to see the remnants of the numbers.

    I am not aware that the serial number was ever placed on the wooden presentation boxes. Cardboard or plastic boxes, yes, especially ones with labels.

    That's a presentation case. Do you have the shipping box with the label on it? The presentation case goes along with the target Hammer, Target trigger, red ramp front sight and the cokes. If you have the tools, papers, and shipping box you would have a very nice package. But what you do have is still very nice. Congratulations!

    The mahogany presentation case didn't come about until sometime in 1960. The early .44 Magnums shipped in a blue box which later changed to a black pebble grained box. Either the blue or black box would have originally had the gun's serial number on the bottom in white grease pencil. If you really want to get the facts Doc44 on the blue forum is your guy.

    Yep, Bill's the man for 44 mags.
    The "leatherette" boxes had the S/N's on them, per Doc44. The pebble grain ones were first, then the smooth vinyl. My 5 screw pre-29 was one of the first 150 shipped (pebble grain box, w/S/N on the bottom).
