Default .38 S&W Special CTG Serial Number Question Please

Hello,
I am new to the forum and have limited knowledge of a weapon I own that was passed down to me. It is a Stainless Steel .38 S&W Special CTG 4" Barrel, Made in U.S.A., Marcas Registradas, Smith & Wesson, Springfield, MASS and the Serial Number on the bottom butt is 3K60260. Also listed on part of the bullet cylinder is 75799 With An "S" turned sideways and "38" stamped in the same location. Also on the frame (hidden until you open the cylinder) is the serial number again 3K60260 and Mod. 67. The weapon is used and needs cleaning, The grips are wood and appear to be Walnut. The sights seen to be special because the rear one looks to be adjustable with a screw in the left end as well as the right end. The screw on the right end is larger than the screw on the left end side. There is also a large screw on the top and in front of the sight mentioned. The front sight seems to be permanently fixed and not adjustable. Anyone who might be able to tell me about this pistol and any history of its production and maybe guess at its value would be greatly appreciated.

Hello and welcome to the forum. What you have is a Model 67 .38 special revolver. It is the stainless version of the Model 15, which was available in either blue or nickel finish. Someone else will come along and provide you with a year of manufacture and a probable value range. As you indicated the rear sight is adjustable for windage and elevation. The larger screws you describe are used to make these adjustments. They are a wonderful revolver and one of Smith & Wesson's mainstays. Enjoy your new toy and when you get a chance, post some pics. We LUV pics!!

Should be 1972. I don't see many for sale and pictures would really help with the value but when you say used and needs cleaning I start thinking $300 to $350. MHO.

Default Photos & Needs Cleaning

Hopefully, this weekend, I will get the revolver cleaned up and have wife take pictures with her magic camera and post photos. Where is the download link to post photos? I'm probably staring right at it and blind to it.
