Howdy, and welcome aboard from Wyoming.

Yes, your Model 60 is a Chiefs Special.

The original Calamity Jane worked in a dance hall in the 1870s in the town I live near. I've seen a copy of her wedding photo (here); best looking image I've ever seen of her. A friend has a copy of her marriage certificate.

Anyway, that aside, the original Chiefs Special came out in 1950. The revolver became the Model 36 in 1957(8), and S&W released the stainless steel version in 1965 so yours is a relatively early example.

I've included an image of my 1989 version of the Lady Smith (note the name on the image).
