Is anyone out there able to confirm for me if this symbol on each end of the “38 S&W special CTG” is a re-blueing mark? I though someone had already told me so but can’t find the post.

Absalom is correct. All the S&W revolvers from that era had them. On older S&W revolvers, a star stamped on the butt near the serial number indicates it went back to the factory to be reworked in some manner

welcome01 to the forums from the Wiregrass! You will see dingbats on older S&W guns around roll stamped text. Many roll stamps incorporate a "foot" that serves to anchor the stamp and prevent it from sliding along the metal surface being stamped. S&W just used dingbats to fancy up the feet on their stamps...and for decoration.
