You probably can't. But it's likely not terribly old and it's age won't affect it's value.

The fact that an importer's name is stamped into the gun suggests that it came into the country since the 1968 importation ban was lifted, as that's when import information was required on foreign firearms. It also says made in West Gemany. That's another clue. So probably late 80's to sometime prior to the reunification of Germany would be my guess.

J. P. Sauer & Sohn is the "Sauer" portion of Sig-Sauer Firearms and yes, they did make some Sig Sauer revolvers. The Hawes Western Marshal was made by them as was the Herter's PowerMag.
