I've got a Smith 38 special ctg with a US Navy stamp with an ID of V 163216 on barrel and on stock ID of V163216. Anyone know the year made and value?
The serial number dates it to 1942 -1945. It's a Victory model made for military service during WWII.
Value depends on condition and ranges from around $350 in "good", $600 in excellent and $750 in "as new" (2006 values). Per the SCSW, "the US Navy marking adds 50 to 100% if marked on the topstrap (above cylinder) and double to triple the value if marked PROPERTY OF US NAVY below the thumb release. Beware of fake markings"
