Scored this S&W Model 10 (no dash) revolver today. The serial number dates it to 1960.
The 2" barrel brings a premium along with the 4 screws. The back strap inscription of P.D. Montgomery is most likely factory done. The rack or badge number of 174 on the left side is better done than some electro pen stuff of the era. Most likely it is a rack number.
The grips are original, and the inside of the right grip panel is stamped with a matching number to the serial number on the butt.
The revolver does show some holster wear. It does not appear the gun has seen much shooting time by looking at the forcing comb and the barrel rifling.
The single and double action trigger pull is as sweet as a glass of Southern ice tea.
