Default Found a model 66- for sale in BLUE

Found what the seller claims is one of 700 made.
I never heard of a blue model 66.
Has 4" barrel and orig. box. Marked CSP xxxx on frame under cylinder.

Ideas on value?

I'll bet it is a mis-marked 19.

Never say never, but I'd sure demand some documentation from the factory before paying anything close to a premium on that. My guess would be, if it is a 66 and not a 19, that someone had it refinished. It would be good to get some pictures....maybe the box end label could help, if it has the box.

There was a run of "midnight black" 686s, but this is the first I've heard of non-standard finished model 66s. Interesting if true.

Do the letters in finish box say BSS? as in blued stainless steel?
Chris, please chime in on this one.

BSS usually refers to Bright Stainless Steel

Taurus made a blue model 66

If it's a Smith, chances are it's mismarked.

BSS stands for Bright Stainless Steel.

I haven't seen one before but the SCSW does make mention of some 700+ that were made for the Connecticut State Police in blued stainless steel. It mentions .265 trigger but target hammer; red ramp and white outline and that certainly seems to mesh with the label pictured.

Does it say 'CSP0001' in special features? Number 1?!
Tell me you bought it.
