      I'm not positive but believe we etched those guns at Bill Davis Service center as awards and also retail sales for National Championships in 88,or 89.I believed they also had a trigger job done as well.Also If you open the cylinder and look at the frame where the 686 is stamped you may find the gunsmith's initials stamped.A couple of us put our initals on these guns.You should also see an M stamped their as well but this was the stamp we put on the guns when modified for the updated firing pin(hammer nose)and hammer nose bushing under S&W recall starting in 87.I really don't know about the value, but there aren't many out there.If you find initials let me know on this forum and I'll let you know who the Gunsmith was. The etching was done with an electric acid chemical etch done over a stencil. JP
