    Thanks for all the replies gentlemen! 1967 is my birth year...I lucked out.

    Can't wait to get it all cleaned up and sitting next to my 1972 Model 67 Combat Masterpiece, then I'll be on the gun broker looking for a period correct blue box for it.
    Thanks again.

    welcome to the forum! just a heads-up if you start looking for a box: that looks like a 4-incher. they measure the barrel from the face of the cylinder. i actually got a few blue boxes in a trade a couple of years ago. i'll check and see if i have anything in the neighborhood.

    it's a beauty! thanks for the pics,

    A fine looking piece but a four inch barrel, not three. You measure from just in front of the cylinder to the muzzle. A fine choice on your part.

    You do have a great looking model 10 there! It is one of the many revolvers any Smith fan should have.

    Hi Ed,
    You are correct, as I started looking at them online I realized it was a 4"...I would love to find a period correct box for it, so let me know if you do find one. Thanks! AD
