Probably not a Smith&Wesson. More likely, the gun is marked for use with S&W cartridges. S&W never made a"Secret Service"model. If you can describe the gun in better detail,(length of barrel,how many cartridges does it hold,what caliber is marked on barrel,etc.)it's much easier to give a better idea on what the gun is worth.
Smith & Wesson did not mark any revolvers "Secret Service Special." Exactly how is your revolver marked? firstname.lastname@example.org
Never made by S&W
No such S&W model.

Despite the markings, these were not made by Smith & Wesson (marking refers to the caliber) and they were not used by the US Secret Service. Depending on condition and finish, these are typically $50 to $125.
S&W did not make a firearm with that name.
44 S&W Special is the caliber, not necessarily the make. If it IS a S&W, the Standard Catalogue of Smith & Wesson will have some information for you. So will S&W Customer Service.
If you contact Smith & Wesson, they will give you that information.
Has nothing to do with Smith and Wesson. A very inexpensive firearm. Not worth more than 25-50 USD. I would not shoot it.

sorry- no. There were companies that used the Secret Service brand name- but they were not Smith and Wesson. However, they FIRED a cartridge that was developed- and NAMED by S&W- so you may see a marking like ".38 S&W CTGE". In that case, it is not the maker of the gun, but its caliber. None of those were actually used by the Secret Service- it was a marketing ploy.
Secret Service SpecialNeat gun but not made by S&W or used by the Secret Service. It was made by Iver Johnson Arms & Cycle Works of Fitchburg,Mass. The 6 diget number is probably the serial number. CTG refers to the caliber such as 32 S&W cartridge."ctg" being an abbreviation. Made prior to WWII. actually there is a secret service special 32 s&w ctgs my serial #168757 and i have iver ja&cw of fitchburg, mass serial #47536 location of serial #'s of both are the buttend of the handle
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.
up to 100 each
In this case, Smith & Wesson refers to the cartridge, and not the maker of your revolver- which was not used by the US Secret Service. The distributor was the Fred Biffar Company of Chicago, and were made by a least 4 different companies, including Meriden and Iver Johnson (whoever gave Fred the best price got the order) These were inexpensive revolvers, and would be worth $50-90, depending on condition.
Impossible to answer without the serial number and a detailed descripton of all featuresl, markings, boxes, papers, accessories, etc.. BTW they were not made by S&W.
100-1000 USD depending on specifics
ethiopians first had the gun in their secret camp on mount gonder.
No such weapon made by S&W
can you show me a picture of my .32 cal. Smith & Wesson hammerless revolver serial #182202
