1975. The 4313-3 would be the factory assembly number. I assume the gun is blued, which makes it a Model 19-3, an all time classic 357 (also might be polished nickel). It is built on the medium sized K frame. Excellent is the word usually used by those who own and shoot Model 19s, unless there are mechanical problems with it. Posting a picture would be a big help, you have provided scant detail to go on. But, with the little you have said, figure $400-450 anyway, maybe a bit more than that. Have it checked by a gunsmith before you shoot it. If the gun is stainless it would be a Model 66. Most likely and typically, you can't go wrong & there will probably be no problems to be fixed, and you'll be amazed when you shoot it. Watch out though, sometimes your 1st 'Smith quickly turns in to 2, then 3, then 4, then 5....and you have the disease. You can shoot 38 Specials in it too, the basic lead slugs are cheaper plinking ammo than full power .357s.
Welcome to the forum! Come back and post pics of the gun after you buy it. You ARE going to buy it, right? fnovnpoa
