I am considering a trade that would include the S&W pictured and I would like to know what a fair resale value would be. I have looked but I have not found any the do not have "Reissue July 25 1871" Serial # 5961

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I do not know about this model but as a rule of thumb I look at the gun and what I can afford to spend. Also what do I want to do with it. So hopefully you can find out more information on the gun.

tough call.. the 4th edition says 1200 (VG), 850 (good), 600 (fair), 400 (poor), thats two years dated, but still a reasonable low guide for those in that rating scale.. mostly the higher end conditions that has seen the appreciation

the refinish would knock it out of consideration in my view - but for someone wanting to fill a hole maybe not as big a deal..


good to fair is what my eye says - just mytwocents

As a collector piece/investment that gun is worth very little. However, it is a cool old gun that might draw some attention to those who like that model. I'd consider it in the $500 range... which will probably make the owners hair catch fire. :?

39th Blue book has a wide range of prices. I am not very good at grading so do what you can with this:

100% $4500, 98% $1900, 95% $1500, 90% $1275, 80% $1000, 70% $925, 60% $825, 50% $695, 40% $650, 30% $575, 20% $475, 10% $375.

If that is a refinished nickle as opposed to original all bets are off. I would expect the grips didn't come from the factory but you'd best ask others about that. I know S&W did some special order work but I am not remotely close to knowledgeable on that topic.
