I need some help identifying an old revolver that belonged to my father,
On the top of it, there are dates (Oct 6 01, dec 17 01, feb 6 08, sep 14 09, dec 02 14). Above the dates it reads Smith & Wesson springfield Mass PaTd.
when you open cylinder there are four numbers (3568).
On the side of the barrel on one side it says smith & Wesson and the other side it says 232 Long CTG ?.
Attached is a photo. If someone could share info about this gun, I would appreciate it. I am saving for my son and would like to know it's worth and how to check the serial number.
I am new to this forum and posting. Please excuse any mistakes.
