Tryin to find model of old Taurus .38 special

I recently aquired all of my old mans guns and there are A LOT, but I have slowly been taking inventory and trying to find out what most of them are worth so I can thin the bunch of 119 firearms. I found this in the bunch and a friend asked how much I wanted for it and can't find a model number anywhere on it, can anyone here help me out?

the serial number is 954088
that is the only numbers I could find on the gun other than a couple under the grip that I don't think have anything to do with the model #

Newer Tauri have the model number stamped inside the yoke. Older ones, who knows. I'm betting that's an older one.

Value? $150-ish, if it passes inspection.

Don't know but i have some advice on selling. Don't be in too much of a rush to sell those guns, they were your Dad's and they will mean something to you later, if not now. On the ones you do sell, hold them until you get top dollar, no need to dump them at bargain basement prices.

you can go to the taurus web site, you can enter the serial number and it will identify the model for you..

I understand the sentimental value, they all mean a lot to me now but I just don't have the room for 119 rifles, pistols, stotguns, never thought I would be in this predicament.... And Taurus' website said that there were no matches found for my serial number..

From your picture I'd say it's a M84. I've got a blued 84 that looks a lot like it. The model number should be stamped in the crane. From the serial number, it is probably old enough that Taurus won't have it in their data base, I'd guess seventies maybe. Looks like a nice revolver. Mine's old but still a tack driver.
