According to the new book on smith wesson the standard catalog 3rd edition it says on the model 15 38spl the 2 inch there was suppose to be made with a serrated trigger but none have been confirmed. I got mine out and it has a serrated trigger and a 2 inch barrel can any one give me more info to see if this is a rare pistol it is approx 90 percent condition

In my experience, those S&W variations don't amount to anything when it comes to value. For one thing, the factory didn't read the book when they put guns together, so what the book says really means little. For another, parts like serrated triggers could be ordered as options. In addition, parts were/are sold and installed, again without regard to the book.
If you can persuade a buyer that the gun is rare and worth something close to the national debt, fine, but I wouldn't count on it as part of a retirement plan.

+1 Even if it is a rarer variation I would venture a guess at no more than $50 on a 90% M15. The 2" barrels are going for more than the 4" versions. The M15's are a very nice revolver.

My brother-in-law ask me this same question, his 2 inch 15 has the same trigger and is nickle, my blued one has a smoothe trigger.

15-2 with a serrated trigger. Paid $375 for it about a year ago. I'm not sure that 2" serrated trigger 15s are all that rare. A friend bought a 15-2 or -3 off gunbroker last month for $355.
