Default Pre 27. Updated with pic's

Hello all the talk on 27 has sparked interest . This is a five inch blue, Ser # S 9094x # on crane 6320 with a 7 stamped below , correct # on cyl& ext rod shield . Too many numbers & letters under grips I need help here there is a B in bottom left corner & a S above it & 354 stamped on the left side a U H & 1 on other side . If pic needed will have to wait on my son. Thanks again Dan B

I am not an expert on codes, but the gun is likely from 1952-53 and the B means it was blued and the 3 could be for 357 caliber or perhaps it was serviced in March of 1954 as the repair shop would stamp the date under the left stock in this fashion. Seems too soon for a refinish so it could have been something minor.

Shorter is better with revolvers. With N frame 357s the 3.5" is king but there is a near cult following for the 5" versions. Value depends on originality (stocks?) and condition. Assuming the stocks are correct and it's a 90% high-end shooter I would pay $650 for but many would call that too low. You are shopping so you have to decide.

1953 is about right. I am one that believes it would probably sell for somewhat more than $650 in good condition. Tough to say without some good pictures.

The revolver was returned to S&W in March 1954 for some type of work. What is inside the diamond stamped in the ejector rod shroud?

I think 410bore is correct about the barrel change.

The diamond stamped in the ejector shroud cut would indicate a barrel change. Most likely in March of 1954. A factory reblue would be stamped differently on the left side grip frame.
