Your gun dates to around 1970 and is a "Military and Police" revolver, which is a fixed sight K frame. You can determine the specific model by swinging open the cylinder and reading the model number that's stamped in the frame cut. It's either a Model 10-5 (standard barrel), 10-6 (heavy barrel), or a 12-2 (aluminum frame M&P Airweight).

The frame marking will look something like this:

Depending on its exact condition it is probably worth $350-400.

If you shoot at all, your 10-5 is a great revolver to hang onto. My 10-5 is a four-inch, and I love it. It's my primary home defense gun.
