Hi guys & gals. As hard as I've tried, I just cannot get anyone to commit to even a round-about ballpark figure on the approx. value of this beauty. Most people I've spoken to, or chatted with, agree that's it's valuable, but no one will commit to a figure. Is it really that hard to value, or is it like one gentleman told me; That I have to have it appraised by pros. If anyone can help. please.....DO! Thanks for all the help you've all been to me! 😎 p.s. I remembered today that a letter of authenticity already exists on this piece from Smith & Wesson, written by the late, great, Roy Jinks! I'm going to my storage this week where I keep my dad's things. I will find it. Dad was pretty meticulous. 😎😎.
