Book doesn't show AWC prefix. The other AW prefixes appear to be 87-88. Probably need to contact S&W to get a ship date..

Welcome home. Pull up a stump and set a spell. More info is needed like caliber and a picture.

Is there a label on the end of the box lid? Looks like an early Chiefs Special in .38. Very nice!!

Post 8559,
1955 does indeed agree with my S&W reference book for S&W J-frame .38Special revolvers:

1955 55050-75000

Supica, Jim; Nahas, Richard. Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson (Standard Catalog of Smith and Wesson) (p. 489). Gun Digest Media. Kindle Edition.
