    Pictures will definitely help your chances of getting the correct model, which will give you more accurate price range.

    From the '60's, I'd guess a model 10. In good shape they are going for about $200.00 to $250.00.

    Did you notice if it had a rear adjustable site?If it is a fixed site its a model 10 (M&P). If its a shooter its worth about 350. If its pristine condition its worth around 500. If it has a rear site its probably a model 15 (Combat masterpiece).Worth 450 to 550 depending on condition.

    Lots of good guess but honestly not nearly enough information to give a reasonable suggestion of value.
