    My grandad gave me this old. 38 special, and I was wondering how old, and what it's appraised at. It's a Smith and Wesson .38 special ctg with a 4" barrel. The serial # on the bottom of grip is 406161, same as cylinder. There is another serial# 34139. The dates on top of the barrel are Oct. 8, 01, dec. 17, 01, feb. 6, 06, sept. 14, 09 and dec. 29, 14. Can anyone tell me how old, and/or how much its worth?

    Thanks a bunch.

    An approximate date of manufacture would be early 1920's. For more specific information see below.

    Between September 1920 (serial 358xxx) & 1927 (500xxx). Asssuming production of around 20,000 guns a year, 1922 or 1923 seems likely.
