Default BABY RUSSIAN BALTO. PD

I have a Baby Russian that was used by the Baltimore PD. Unfortunately most of the backstrap engraving has been filed away, possibly when it was removed from PD service. Volume 11 of the S&W Journals list 9 known by serial numbers from 4600 to 6949. Mine falls within that range. Later research may include more that are known. This piece is 4" nickel with all matching numbers including the right grip. Good condition except the grips are well worn from holster use. Stamped on the toe of the grip frame left side is J.T. BLACKSTEN. One could logically conclude that this may be an officers name. Would anyone with any suggestions as to how I may reunite this piece of history with the Blacksten descendants or a PD historian please e-mail me for additional info. thanks
