    I have a S&W small revolver - 5 shot 38 special with blue finish and scrooling everywhere. Wood grips with S&W logo inserts on both sides and has large gold colored logo on side opposite cylinder release. Never fired looks new.

    Serial number is J652XXX

    Looking for details - model - manufacturer date - value maybe

    thanks

    Rick,

    Please open the cylinder and look on the frame where the swing arm swings out and there should be some numbers and maybe letters. Tell us what they are.

    OK so now I know how to post Pics - what did my last message tell you about manufacturer date - and perhaps number produced and maybe value?

    You probably need to pony up the money to get a letter from S&W as this does not appear to be a run of the mill 36. If the engraving was factory done it could be special but the only way to prove that is for S&W to say it. I believe the "letter" is about $50 or so...
