Unfortunately my grandfather passed away a month ago at 96. He had a few firearms and a 38 special was given to me. Hearing stories after my grandfather had passed I learned his father was a constable for the railroad. I’m wondering if this was his side arm. The numbe I the grip is C 358263 and the number in the frame with cylinder open is Y then below 44614 the a 9 below that

Hi, welcome to the forum, and sorry for your loss. The revolver is a model 38 Military & Police which became the model 10 when S&W started using model numbers in 1957.. Yours would be from close to then so I would say made in 1956 or 1957

C series Pre model 10, from the mid 1950's. No way to tell if it was his work sidearm.

Sorry about you grandfather. He did have a good run. My grandfather passed in 1982 at the age of 96. I miss him everyday.
