    Default S&W Model No. 1 third issue?

    Hey Troops!
    A friend of a friend, asked me for help identifying a S&W breaktop... it is .22 short, birds head grip, fluted cylinder, writing on top of barrel.... it is in nice shape, I’m guessing 80%+.... my blue book is old and says $425.... for a model No. 1 third issue.... Serial # 172XX
    do I have it ID’d correctly.... and would you say my value estimate is correct.... I really don’t know what I’m talking about with antique handguns!

    I hope I’m not taking advantage....
    By asking for your opinions... as I have done before!
    Thanks!
    Fred

    A Templar is truly a fearless knight, and secure on every side, for his soul is protected by the armor of faith, just as his body is protected by the armor of steel.

    I have a second edition somewhere in my house and have dug into it a little. It looks to me like you are in the price range if you can find a F to F buyer. GB always has some up for auction and you can check there for pricing. They don’t seem to be a particularly hot item. IIRC the serial numbers are on the cylinder and can easily identify which edition it is. Along with the physical differences.
    Sorry but I'm all out of pity right now, please try later.
