My gun serial #3K90682 Model # 14-3. was wondering when it was manufactured and value? Any body help? Has a 8" barrel and checkered grip

Hi. 8 3/8" barrel. Model 14's were made between 1947 and 1982. The '-3' indicates post 1967. (They moved the rear sight leaf screw.) The S/N indicates 1972.
Its value depends on condition. A 6" likely has more demand than an 8 3/8" though.
