In good condition, the value is bumping squarely onto $400.

Nowadays anywhere between $250 and $400. It depends on location more than any other factor it seems.
I'm moving your thread to Revolvers.

The model 28s are excellent revolvers, and being built in 72 means you get a revolver before S&W started cheapening the production models to reduce costs. You get a pinned barrel and recessed cylinders.
I've had a 28-2 for about 4 years now and wouldn't trade it for the world.
It's a working man's model of the venerable Model 27.

Is there anything in particular to look out for when picking up a revolver like this?
You say its worth about $400 but how easy would it be to resell at this price?
How can one "date" one of these revolvers?(date of manufacture)
