I was going to do that, but I am technologically illiterate, so when I get home from work today I will have my wife show me how to do that. Thank you all very much for welcoming me into the group. Pictures soon.

Welcome to the forums from the Wiregrass! Your mother's gun is a .32 Regulation Police revolver. Another RP with SN 662567 shipped in September 1957. I suspect your gun shipped around the same time if not in the same month. In 1957, S&W designated these guns as Model 31. However, official stamping of the model # inside the yoke cut didn't occur until 1958 for most guns. So, if you open the cylinder and look inside the hinge there probably will not be a MOD 31 stamped in there. It appears to be in pristine condition. Congratulations on an awesome heirloom!

Thank you for that !!! I just might have to keep it put away as a collectors piece and buy my wife something else since I now know it is a somewhat rare gun. I will be checking inside the cylinder for any markings as you suggested. Very informative group. Thank you all.
