I had a friend...

I had a friend, a former cop, who passed. His wife offered his service and backup S&W revolvers to me How do I find out what they are worth to compensate her. Pete

Expert's Assistant: How can the Gunsmith help you with your firearm? Please tell me everything you can so the Gunsmith can help you best.

Service revolver, S&W 38 spl model 10-6, wood grips original, I think. His dates of service, name and department engraved on the right side of the piece.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Gunsmith should know?

The model 10, blueing is warn from holster wear, solid front sight ramp, painted white, and rear sight is groove in the top plate, they look original. I also have a model 60 J frame stainless steel, with wood grips that look original from factory, It is also a 38 spl caliber.
