My FFL guy has a blued, six-shot, 2", .38 Spl., serial #1825XX. The weird thing about the gun is that on the yoke it is stamped "623." Aside from that and the serial # there is nothing else. I can't find any 4-1-1 on a Model 623. Is it possible that it's an older Model 10 (M&P?) or something along those lines? Any idea on age? Thanx.

The 623 is just an assembly number to keep fitted parts together. Your gun is pre 1957 when model numbers were assigned. It could be called a pre Model 10. It's most likely a 2" Military & Police.

Thanx, I had a feeling that's what it was. Does anyone have an idea on its age?

Does it have a letter prefix in front of the serial number? Like a letter C?

I called and apparently there is a "C" a couple of spaces b4 the number. Too bad he didn't tell me that from the get-go.

1948 - 1951. Most likely on the later side. The square butt 2" guns aren't real common with the half moon sight.
Yup. I have a 4" from about the same timeframe - just 27,000 serial numbers earlier than the one in the OP.
