Just found this forum and thought this would be the place. Trying to determine age of a 38. Right side of barrel says "38 S & W Special CTG" On right side below cylinder it says "Made in USA Marcas Registradas Smith Wesson Springfield MASS. There is a large S W trademark stamp below the trigger. Stamped on the bottom of the handle is
D133xxx. Open the cylinder and stamped in front of the cartridge holder is 95257 and below that a backwards C. Also stamped MOD 10 5. On the left side of the barrel is says SMITH & WESSON. Six shot cyclinder, barrel from front to front of cyclinder is approx 5"
Any insight as to the age or history of this would be greatly appreciated.
