Default Need help on a Virginia Sheriffs Association 19-5

A friend of mine wants me to sell his Commemorative Virginia Sheriffs Association Model 19 revolver. I believe it is a 19-5. It is a 50th anniversary commemorative.

Can't find any info about it or what the value might be on it. It appears to be 1 of 110 produced. It is in mint condition in the box with certificate. The only minus is light timing marks where someone probably rotated the cylinder. I highly doubt it has ever been shot. Thanks for any help as far as what this is or any value ideas!

Welcome to the forum DrK.

Very nice 19 commemorative. I picked up a 19-5 West Virginia Conservation Officers commemorative, 1 of 133, a couple of weeks ago. LNIB, in the wooden presentation box. Unfired since the factory. I fixed that.

The dealer had $700 on it. I traded him a 686-4+ snub for it - even. I was in the snub right and had confirmed I have no use for L-frame snubs.

So, locally that 19-5 commemorative would probably bring $650 to $700. Hope this helps! Regards 18DAI

Very nice gun in great condition, and a nice box. I assume the engraving on the gun matches that of the box. I like the Association's incorporation of the Virginia seal in the logo. Sic semper tyrannis!

18DAI, any chance you could upload some pictures of the WV 19-5? I'd love to see that.

There were 110 produced in 1983. The S and W Model 19 comemerates the 50th anniversary of the Association. I have number 109 and it was appraised at $1,300.00 back in the mid 80's.

They were not issued.
They were available to members of the association and also had a belt buckle numbered to the gun. I have had number 105 of the 110 produced since they were offered and just couldn't bring myself to fire it.
