Smile Victory model 38spl

I am trying to find information on my Victory model SN V61997,
4" revolver. The butt has a small ordnance bomb with the number 370 stamped over it. The serial number indicates it could be made in 1942. It would seem an early Victory model.
The finish is worn, but looks like it was dull blue, not parkerized.
the pistol is tight and the bore is excellent. the numbers all match including the grips. Was it made in 1942 and what could the value be?
Any help is appreciated. :)
Thanks,
Victory42

Welcome from Wisconsin!

I'm sorry I can't answer your questions but I'm sure someone will be along who can. That failing you can always post your questions in one of the revolver forums located near the top of the page. Good luck!

Welcome from NH.
As Glenn said, go to S&W Hand Ejectors 1896-1961 thread near forum menu start and locate the Victory Data base thread. Post you info to find out date and other info on your Victory. Also, see if there is anything stamped on the top strap on the left side
