Item Description

From its home domicile in North Mississippi comes this pristine 1956 Production Smith & Wesson .38 Centennial. Serial number is 9000 range, no prefix or suffix. It is in its original starburst box, with hand lettered serial number at the bottom of its blue bordered label. Its production descendants were numbered as model 40 beginning some time later in the same year. Yoke and inside grip panel numbers match the butt serial number. Type is full time double action, with round butt J frame. Construction is entirely steel, with bright blue finish and color casehardened .265 serrated face trigger. Grips are original factory smooth finish walnut. Cylinder chambering is 5 rounds of .38 Smith & Wesson Special standard ammunition. Lee Jurras was not yet marketing +P ammunition in 1956. Hammer is internal, with hammer nose type firing pin. Weight empty is 20 5/8 ounces, with center of gravity at the trigger. Surface detractions are minimal, only faint amounts of edge wear from years of storage, and age dullness to the grips’ finish. We rate it as Excellent in Box, 90 to 95 percent vicinity by our estimate, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Cylinder face carbon is very light, we estimate this revolver was fired no more than 10 times after it left the factory. Box shows aging, with some edge wear and light staining. We rate the box as Very Good, perhaps even Excellent. Nox paper is factory, but later replacement. We’re offering the 1956 Pre-40 Centennial in the photos, complete with its original box for only $ 1289.00.
