Depends upon the barrel length. What is your barrel length?

Dear Guest
To clarify what kcbuck is telling you, the Model 60 can be divided into 5 different issues.
The first issue was a straightforward stainless steel version of the Model 36 Chiefs Special. It came with a 2" pinned barrel. These can be divided between those that were produced before 1969 and those produced after, which had an R prefix on the serial number.
The second issue Model 60 came with a 3" full underlug barrel and was rated for +P ammunition.
The third issue was the LadySmith version with a 3" barrel and the name Lady Smith engraved on the side (usually on the right side of the gun).
The fourth issue was made on an enlarged J frame known as the "J Magnum" and was chambered for the .357 Magnum. These were only made for a brief period in the 1990s and are easily identifiable by the chambering.
Current production Model 60s are once again only available in .38 Special and have the firing pin floating in the frame instead of pin-mounted on the hammer.
This should give you enough information to correctly identify which Model 60 you own, and kcbuck can give you a value for it.
Regards,
JP
