Welcome to the forums from the Wiregrass! The -1 version of a lot of S&W models indicated a change from right to left hand threads on the extractor rod. There is usually an L stamped on the breech face of the cylinder and a gutter between the knurled end and smooth body of the extractor rod to indicate left hand thread. This mod didn't last long before the -2 versions came out. Thus, there are a limited number of -1 marked guns. For example, there is only 1 known Model 28-1. As a collector, you know that rarity drives up values. That's why you see increased values for Mod 19-1 guns.

I recommend getting the app Tapatalk for your smartphone. Then you can post pictures you take with the phone directly to the forum. We do need pictures to tell you more and assess valuation.
