Of the three S&W top-break, single-action .38s yours, the 2nd Model, is the least valuable, although the long barrel does add a bit. The 1st Model, also known as the "Baby Russian," is more valuable and the 3rd Model, also known at the "Model of 1891" is much more valuable. The latter has a full, round trigger guard and is a super looking revolver. I would never touch a 3rd Model, and probably would not touch a 2nd Model, but they made over 108,000 of them, so if you decided to refinish one that had worn finish to begin with it would not be a hanging offense. They are among the least costly of collectible Smiths.
