Identify/Date thes two Smith & Wessons?
I have a client who's husband passed and left her two older S&W Revolvers. One is a chromed 32 Long, in what I'd call 85-90% shape. The other is a 38 Special, not as old, and pretty well worn. Attached are pictures with Serial Numbers. If anybody here can help me with dates, and possibly reference retail values, she's looking to sell them, and not get hosed.

The model number should be stamped on the frame under the crane when you swing the cylinder out. Have you looked there? Model number followed by a - and another number if there was a revision to it.
The second looks like a model 60, not sure on the first. I have not seen alot of the older smiths but I am thinking they are probably from late 60's or 70's.

Did you ever get these identified?The .32 looks like a .32 hand ejector pre model 30,maybe late 40's,with later grips.The second one looks like a model 64,which is a stainless finish model 10.

The .32 cal may be an I-frame. The second is a K-frame (likely a nickel plated model 10). The first for sure, and possibly both may pre-date S&W using Model numbers.
I've owned a couple like that (no model numbers) in the past.
The best way to determine their current market value is to find similar ones for sale on gun broker and the like, and see what they're selling (not the asking price) for.
