I'm a new member on this forum, though am guilty of lurking and having hidden in the bushes for a while. There is clearly a lot of expertise running around loose here. I admit to owning more S&W's than Colts, but have always had a very soft spot for Pythons (having shot one in bullseye competition as a young police officer - back when I had hair and muscles).

I request date of manufacture data on a blue 6" Python beauty with serial number 95,5XX (no prefix or suffix).

From experience with other examples, I'm guessing production was near (not later than) 1969, but I don't have adequate reference materials. This one is about 98-99% (no box or papers) with light drag marking and the best single-action trigger I've ever owned - including a load of S&W's! What is the going rate for such a snake as this in the real world of the midwest?

Thanks in advance for the assist.

You hit the nail on the head, 1969 had serial numbers 90000 thru 99999.
Around here your Python would probably go for between $800-895.
Nice shootin arn.

P.S. Where in east central Illinois, Peoria, Bloomington?
