Looks like aftermarket grips, the trigger, hammer & cylinder release were plated aftermarket.

We can't tell you nuttin' about it......without the serial number found on the butt (bottom) of the grip frame. In any case, it probably was not done by S&W. Bob

1955 Serial #742XXX
actually closer to 1968. standard (not heavy) 3" barrel is legit, aftermarket grips and hammer/trigger/release have been worked over - id want to see the other side for plate gap/fit to see if its been refinished..

The number of digits in the serial number makes a difference. The serial number range for 1955 is 55050-75000, 5 digits. The serial number range for 742xxx is six digits and falls between 275000-786544, 1962-1969.


Serial number 5062xx, six digits, about 1967 - presentation engraving on backstrap dated 24 Dec. 1967
