Have to compare it to numbers in the Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson. Also, some gun stores will have a book containing them as well as a listing of special runs, who ordered them and their description.

Alternately, The Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson (book) also contains serial number/dates.

And the proper serial number is on the butt of the pistol. Many people confuse assembly numbers in the crane area for the serial which is incorrect. Intermittently through time they did also put the serial in the crane area but to be sure get it off the butt. Make sure to include any letters. In some guns like K frames with adjustable sights the serial number includes a K which often is separated from the rest of the serial by a bit of space
