    S & W Hammerless Nickel 38

    I have a very old pistol that was my Grampa's & I'm interested in selling it.
    Serial No. is 65261.
    Nickel w/mother of pearl handle,38 cal. Has some pit spots.
    Top of gun reads: S & W Springfield, Mass. LSA Pat'd Feb 20th,Dec. 1877,May IL 60,Sept. 11,Oct. 12.05,Aug. 4.85,Feb. 14.86,April 9.88,June 30.90.
    Could someone give me a ballpark price on gun and where to go to sell it? Gunbroker?
    Any help appreciated, Thanks--Mark

    looks like a first model, made between 1891 and 1902 is my guess.... the safety hammerless is also known as the "lemon squeezer"

    best guess for a place to sell it would be the s&w forum

    ...It's worth at least $450.00, and, because of the nickle and mother-of-pearl, it might be worth much more.

    Sell it to a collector, not a gunshop. A store would give you only about 50% of the selling price.

    The best sales method would be to place it with a gun-auction house, for instance Rock Island Arms. That's how you'd realize the most money from it.

    Don't sell Grandpa's Gun. You will be sorry. You should keep it in the Family.

    I think I agree didnt cost you anything so keeping it wont cost you but selling what should be a family heirloom might make you sorry you did
