Scored a Model 63 no dash. Since it is a no dash and no barrel pin, I think mid 80's

AYF7xxx

Thanks!

Mid 80's is correct! 1987 to be exact.

I have two Smith .22 revolvers I'd like dated if you please.
A model 63 no-dash 4", non-pinned, red ramp & white outline sights M221XXX,
and a model 34-1 4" pinned, black sights M313XX.

Thank you!!

Thanks! I should have looked before asking as the photo of a parkerized S&W was a Victory. It does have the V prefix on the other side of the D ring.

M221xxx = 1983. However, that serial numbers seems to high for a 63 no dash.
M313xx = 1971.

Thank you so much!
I looked again for any signs of a "dash 1" behind the yoke, just a clear stamped 63.
I found this online.

Serial Number

I just picked up a S&W 38 Safety 3.5 inch really cheap form an auction. It's in pretty bad shape but still has the original box. I thought trying to clean it up would be a good project. The serial on it is 179XXX. I don't see any letters in front of the numbers. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There should be a ā€œNā€ prefix with that number. Look on the underside of the grip frame for the serial number. You may have to remove the grips to see it.
N7828xx would be 1980.

AHU puts it around 1985.
In 80%, about $350 to $400.

Scored a pair of S&W Titanium snubbies: CDH0xxx and CDH3xxx. I think that would put them around 2001. Thanks!

Found a deal on a 66-1, 76K4xxx. I would guess 1980 or 1981, right before the switch to 66-2.

Thanks!
