What is my Smith and Wesson .38 double action Snub Nose 950J10 worth? Inherited from my grandmother. My grandfather bought for her from Spivey's Sporting Goods in the 1950s or 1960s. He put pearl grips on it as her middle name was pearl.

I believe,though hard to see, it is 86669. The gun is in really good condition. The bluing is a little tarnished on the end of the barrel due to taking it in and out of the holster.
Okay. This is a Chiefs Special and I can see the serial number on the bottom of the grip frame. It is as you said in your earlier post, and that number does point to shipment in 1972.
The number you are giving me from the yoke area is an assembly number which now means nothing. What I'm looking for is a stamp that says, MOD 36. Do you see that on the frame in the yoke cutout?
Your revolver appears to be in NRA Excellent condition, aside from the aftermarket stocks. The value is probably around $400-$450.
