My father, who is a minister, was making a house call on an elderly lady who decided she didn't want her deceased husband's gun in the house anymore so she gave it to my father. The gun was purchased in 1968 and received in 1969. The woman didn't know if he husband had even shot the gun and unfortunately he died in 1969. My father, who is forever honest and an avid shooter, decided to lay any notion to rest that the gun was never shot by putting 12 rounds through it. Why, I am not too sure. It is an absolutely gorgeous gun complete with factory bluing. My question is, since neither of us have dealt with an sort of collectors guns other than what we see at the occasional gun store, does anyone have a direction to point us in to find out the value and can you tell me if this gun is worth any more than the ordinary value of a .357, maybe more to a collector. And any good locations to post for sale? Here are the specifics of the gun. Smith & Wesson, .357 Combat Magnum Model 19, Factory Blue finish, 2 1/2" barrel, round butt. Original box including owner's half of warranty card, instruction on use and maintenance, 1968 letter to original owner from the factory apologizing that delivery took so long but they are really busy. The original wax paper wrap is even there, but no tools. Fired only a handful of times. Ser. No. K7926XX. Thanks for any help.
