    Looking for Mfg Date for S&W .38 Special CTG

    S/N V 313848
    5 screw frame. Cartridge ejector; rounded front site; square butt; and smooth walnut grips. Knurled trigger and hammer. Pinned barrel and rear site is a notch.

    Stamped on top of barrel "SMITH & WESSON SPRINGFIELD, MASS, USA"
    Second line on barrel "PATENTED FEB.8.06 SEPT.14.09 DEC.20.14"

    On left of barrel "SMITH & WESSON"

    On right side of barrel ".38 S & W SPECIAL CTG"

    On left side above the cylinder on the bevel of the frame is stamped "X U.S. PROPERTY G H D." (the "X" is a symbol, or an 8 as its difficult to tell for sure).

    Any info regarding mfg date and what the G H D stands for would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks, Ron
