It seems to be in fair condition. Since you do not know what model it is, I would take it to a gun shop (not the one you plan on selling it to) Get it appraised and then go to the shop you are planning on selling it to get it appraised there and then go from there.

It is a 5 screw version which puts it pre '45. It will not have a model #. They did not # the models til well after WWII.

For its age, it seems to be in nice condition. To a collector it would probably be worth $3-500 unless the "England" stamp significantly alters the value.

It had better be a nice scope to trade.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.

It appears to be a K frame Military and Police. Open the cylinder and look where the crane closes and there should be either a K or an N. If it's an N it's a 38/44 heavy duty. Those grips are going to hurt value tho.

Here's my 26 N frame 3rd model .44

if its 38 S&W its a british lend lease,a 38 special it is a military and police. the logo is worn off is definatly not an N model.if it was reblued it could be a victory.NO model number makes it pre 1950.
