Default S&W 38 Special History

Could somebody tell me about the age or any other information about a gun belonging to my grandfather? The first 3 digits of the 6 digit serial number are 449. I believe it is at least 80 years old, perhaps more.

Thank you.

A picture of it would sure go a long way. I'd love to see what you have even if I don't know a thing about it!
