Amish Hitman (love that screen name!): Your gun dates from 1956, just before S&W started assigning model numbers to their revolvers. It's either a .357 Magnum Model of 1950 (pre-Model 27) or a Highway Patrolman (pre-Model 28). The former will have a high-polish blue finish while the latter, the more utilitarian version of the same gun, will be more of a satin blue. There are other finish detail differences such as a lack of serrations on the barrel rib on the M28.
