    According to the Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson, your Model 53 was manufactured in 1961.

    A call to this 1-800-331-0852 will get you the month and year the gun actually left the Factory. The production of the Model 53 was short but many Guns remained "In Stock" at the Factory for many years. The books are just a place to start.
