I suspect the Model 57's serial number is missing a letter prefix, such as an "N".
If so, this revolver was made between 1980-1983.

Model 57 revolvers go back to 1964. If the serial number turns out to be something different, perhaps provide photos next time.

I don’t have the book with me but I know AYM prefix is Jan 88 so your likely 1987.
