I have a S&W 38 revolver that is similar to the one in the picture that is posted here. I will post a new picture of mine. The serial number is 55015 and I was wondering how to find out information on this gun. It belonged to my grandfather and want to know about how much it is worth and when it was built.
I have nto fired it and it has not been fired in many many years.
You have a .38 Double Action Perfected Model (last top break revolver introduced by S&W).
Serial numbers ran fron 1 in 1909 to 59400 in 1920. The book shows values from $275 in "fine" to $1100 in "as new"
