Best way to look for evidence of shooting on a S&W 1-2-3rd Gen is to look closely to where the hammer smacks the top of the pistol’s frame each time the slide reciprocates. It doesn’t smack the **** out of the frame when you rack the slide, but it dings it solidly under live fire.

Also, close to that location is the area at the most rear of the slide, where folks who aren’t well versed in the 1-2-3rd Gen (or the careless or ham-fisted) will routinely smack the tip of the ejector on the rear of the frame when attempting to reassemble the pistol. That will be to the left of the firing pin and marks from the two smaller levers will leave marks to the right side of the firing pin at the rear of the slide.
