Smith & Wesson
Model 29-2    .44 Magnum
Blued, in presentation case with papers and tool
Year: 1978      Estimated value: $1,500.00
This is the 8 3/8 version of the .44 magnum with its high polish blue finish, its original presentation case and factory paperwork and tools. This one has probably been fired but is in exceptional condition showing only light handling marks. Notice the condition of the plastic tray inside the case is starting to show some wear and light cracking. This is common for this set. The guns are heavy and sturdy and the trays are flimsy. These can be found from undamaged, to shredded to pieces condition. Condition matters. This set has appreciated at a rate of about 16% annually since 2010. This one has the cash register receipt from original purchase date of Dec 13, 1978 showing $442.00 including tax.
