No serial number = no answer.
Would have to at least know the frame size.
it was made around the 1960's
If its a 5 shot its most likely a J frame. If its a 6 shot its most likely a K frame.
Frame and bottom of grip
Impossible to answer without the serial number.
Your early J frame model 36 Smith and Wesson was made in the year 1955 with the serial number that you have provided.
If the serial number is J75635 then your Smith and Wesson model 36,J frame revolver was made between 1979-1980.
Open the cylinder and look at the frame that is usually hidden by the crane. The serial number is stamped on the frame.
Some older models of S&W revolvers you have to remove the grips to find the serial numbers engraved on the grip frame.
Call Smith and Wesson and they will tell you. You will be in the early 80's time frame.
The "J" frame is the Smith & Wesson small frame revolver such as the model 36 .38 special. The smallest frame, as in the model 36 Chief's Special.
Does not follow J frame sn convention. You will have to call S&W to find out.
On the frame under the yoke.If your Smith and Wesson was made after 1958.If it was made prior to this year,it will have a serial number only.
The frame size of a Smith and Wesson model 66 is K.
The smith and Wesson model 10 has the K service frame.
If you are speaking of a K frame revolver it was 1961.
Find a copy of the Standard Catalog of Smith and Wesson, sn data is in it.
smith and Wesson handguns have had there model numbers stamped on the crane since 1958.open the cylinder and look at were the clylinder and the frame come together.there should be a serial number and a model number and possable dash that follows.example ( mod 15-2).
Check the butt and crane area of the frame.
100-1000 depending on specifics
Up unitl @ 1957 model numbers were not used. Check inside the frame near the crane, it has a model number, it will be there.
Smith and Wesson makes parts in batches. There is no guarantee that a frame made and serial numbered today will be built today. The best you can do is to get the approximate date it was shipped from Smith and Wesson to a distributor. If you had provided the serial number, an answer could be given.
Check the bottom of the grip frame (the butt).
Not enough information to answer. Need to provide frame size and/or caliber.
Normally stamped on the left side of the frame for autos, and on the butt for revolvers.
