My mother recently gave me a S&W revolver she says is from her grandfather.
The information I can gather from the gun itself is this:
The side of the barrel reads "38 S.&W. Special CTG"
There is a number on the frame next to the cylinder - "6601"
are some pictures of the gun including a close-up of where the number is.
I know it looks terrible, and the grip has been temporarily replaced while the original is restored. The metal will also be cleaned and re-finished.
I was hoping this information could help identify the date of the gun and maybe the value.
