    To you it is worthless, To me as cheap as I can get it.
    If you have details on the gun such as the s.n or a good ideal of its condition you can look it up in the blue book of gun values or post on smith-wessonforum.com and they can help you out.

    Be sure to tell them where you are as regional prices vary. but i would pay 500-600 for a good one.

    What finish does it have?

    The 19's were typically blued.

    Either way, it's between $600 to $900.

    Very cool piece! I have a couple myself.

    Be well,
    Will

    The 19-1 was only made for a couple of years. The dash 1 would have enhanced value as a collectable. Unfired, with box, papers, and tools, in the condition you describe, I would say in the neighborhood of $1900.00 to $2200.00 depending on the collector.

    Hope this helps.

    Best,
    Gary

    sound like S&W 357 Model 19-1 is very rare piece.

    "Model 19-1s were shipped mainly in 1959 and were replaced late in that year or early in 1961 by the 19-2"
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smith_&_Wesson_Model_19

    so it could be worth more than 19-2, 19-3, 19-4, 19-5, 19-6.

    I personally believe the model 19 to be the best S&W revolver ever made, but I could be biased!

    Blue Book values in 98 to 100% condition: $1600-$1850.
    Must be stamped "Mod 19-1" in yoke cut.

    Yeah, that's the problem with scarcer, pricier guns like this-they become safe queens. Be nice to own one, though.

    I traded a H&K USP compact for my model 19, I had the USP for 5 years and hardly ever shot it,
    I have put as many rounds through the 19 in 4-1/2 months, love that 19, and she ain't no "Safe Queen"

    I've always said that a medium frame 4" double action .357 with adjustable sights was
    one of the "everybody needs at least one" guns. I'm a sucker for K frame Smiths, and
    the older pinned/recessed 19's are at the top of my list. Pretty sure I would NOT buy
    a NIB 19-1 though-----I wouldn't be able to resist taking it out and shooting it.:bluelaugh:
