Default 38 smith and wesson manufacture date

I'm a new member from GA. I am hoping someone might be able to give me a ballpark estimate of how old my 38 smith and wesson snub nose (5 shot) might be....serial number is 5J1291. Thanks for any help you can provide!

Welcome from Texas Steeler396. Great forum for all things S&W, have fun, learn lots, share what you know.

Others will be along later but not enough information to help. Photos are a big help and more details regarding the revolver will also help.
