I agree 1500 is a good place to start in that condition. If it was me I’d maybe put it up for 2000 or more and see if you get any bites. Nickel models are worth more and I think a good bit rarer in 5 screw models. You don’t have a box or papers by chance?

BTW the grips are much later than the gun. The factory grips would have diamonds around the screw hole and being a 1955 gun could possibly have been non relieved diamond target grips. Correct grips for your gun could run $200 - $300. It also could have shipped with diamond magna style grips which would be a bit cheaper to replace. Only a factory letter will give you this information.

I would be looking high and low for the factory stocks. Probably long gone though. A collector would want them but would also take issue with the trigger shoe and the marks the set screws leave on the trigger. It is a desirable Smith and Wesson revolver, very desirable and $1,500 is certainly a good place to start even with all the "minuses'.
