Hey, folks! Brand new to this forum...yeah, where have I been, well mostly on the machinegun boards but always been a fan of the Smiths. I've got this pretty nice Model 36 and was wondering about the year of manufacture. Serial number 764657. I'm guesstimating around 1969 or thereabouts? Are there any particularly desirable features on this era model as opposed to earlier or later versions of 36 models or later models?
Many thanks, I look forward to stopping by here now that I'm a member.

Welcome to the forum. Prior to 68 there was a diamond around the screw hole on the grips, so if the grips are original it would be 68 or later

Grips are original. So it is a '68-'69 period, it appears that's as close as we can get on dating Thank you for confirming it for me!
