Here are some pictures of my 32 "new departure" antique Smith&Wesson revolver.
The sn is 78,xxx and from what I understand that means it shipped around 1896 or 7. It seems to be in excellent working order with a clean bore.
I purchased it for the rediculously low price of $50.00 from an old timer. it came with the case shown in the photos which I suspect to be about as old as the gun. The nickel finish looks to be original and not perfect but not too bad either.
Can some of you maybe offer some opinions about what this gun might actually be worth? This is only the second S&W I have ever owned, (the other being an ugly 15-3 that I coincidently also purchased for $50.00). I might keep it or I might sell it depending on the current value.
Thank you for any expertise you can lend.
