The Secret Service Special was made by both Iver Johnson and Meriden Firearms for the Fred Bifar Co of Chicago in the early 1900's. There's not a lot of information available about this model or Fred Bifar Co, but it is apparently very similar to the IJ Model 1900 which will retail for $50-$175, depending on originality and condition.

If you are referring to the US model 1917 revolver,I would say that they are going anywhere from 400-1,000 dollars depending on condition and finish.
Step 1- be sure that the maker of our revolver WAS Smith & Wesson. If the only marking is "38 S&W", that is not the maker, but the caliber. Second, if the gun IS marked Smith & Wesson, contact S&W customer service. S&W does not share data on dates of manufacture as other makers do.
83-88 or 91-99. You will have to call S&W to narrow it down.
100-500 USD or so
Made @ 1964.
50-2000 or so depending on EXACTLY what you have and condition
