Hello, I'm new to the forum but not to S&W revolvers. I have a Model 64-3 with a 3" barrel that I bought in 1995 as a police trade in via a supplier in SHOTGUN NEWS. I paid extra money for hand select and when it showed up it looked like it had spent its entire life in storage, neither shot or carried. It's probably about is as pristine condition as you could possibly expect a police trade in gun to be.
What I assume to be the s/n is stamped on the bottom of the grip and reads ADP1XXX.
I never see any 3" versions of this model advertised anywhere, which seems odd since I think it's a nice convenient length.
Can anybody give me a hand identifying the vintage of this firearm and a rough idea of what it might be worth?
