Victory model information

Just purchased a S&W 38 special victory model that someone chromed. Decent price though, and wife wanted a wheel gun to practice with for her ccw.
Looking for any information about when was made and delivered to.
No markings seen other than normal (no navy or u.s.property).
Serial numbers: V272xx
Thanks all.

Only the S&W historian can tell you where it was shipped to and there is a charge for that.

Looks like both were built around the same time period.
The N2xxxxx range ran from 1974 to 1977. Yours is near the end.
For the 39-2, SN's ran from A295001 in 1976 to A385000 in 1977.
