OK, no problem. That's an offer from the website itself.

OK, I'm back. Your Smith & Wesson Highway Patrolman was made during 1961/62 and it was offered in a (rare) brushed nickel finish. There are many fakes out there though, so to be sure that your nickel finish was original to the gun, I would highly suggest getting a factory letter from S&W - http://www.theswca.org/forms/Letter_request_form.pdf

I hope that this was helpful! If you don't need anything else, please remember to complete a positive rating at the top of your Just Answer screen with the stars. That will then complete our session.

Thanks!
Jim
