The serial number would make it a 1961 model. Prices vary many times by location. Around here that revolver w/box would go for about $500.00 +/-.

Looks to need a cleaning? Maintenance tells a story to a collector.
For a shooter, I'd go 400-500 for an otherwise-unused zero-damage, zero-wear gun with original box-n-stuff.

Good info above and I agree with 'am' gun needs a GOOD cleaning, lots of gunk, stuff in the nooks and crannies.
Remove the grips and give it a good soaking in something like plain kerosene, over night, brush it off or blow it out with an air hose ( low pressure) lube it up with whatever lube works for you, we ALL have our favorites, but no need to go out and buy anything else or different.......we like and use 'RIG' on all the outside of the guns, works on wood,metal and plastic, have NOT had a single gun rust in any way for us, ever, over 60 years.......
good luck and enjoy, NICE gun :wink:

Hmmm, he wants $550 but I probably won't be able to see it for a week. I'll have to think it over...

Well the box is $75 to $100 dollars if you want to sell it....

So that puts you in at $450....offer $500 and see what happens....good luck...RR
