Early production revolver with "S" prefix in serial number -- S115xxx. Five-screw frame. Most likely made in 1954, the inaugural year of production.

"In the late 1940's and the first part of the 1950's, Smith & Wesson was the only American firearms company manufacturing a .357 Magnum revolver in their Model 27, descended from their famous Registered Magnum. Law enforcement agencies favored the Model 27, but its high-polish finish and labor-intensive top-strap checkering added expense with no added utility. Since this relatively deluxe model was the only revolver available for this cartridge at the time, police departments as well as individual officers and private shooters requested from Smith & Wesson a more utilitarian, "budget" .357 Magnum revolver. In 1954 Smith & Wesson responded with the Highway Patrolman (re-named the Model 28 in 1957). In developing the Highway Patrolman, Smith & Wesson removed the more expensive features from the Model 27 (the high degree of polish and the checkering on the top-strap) in order to reduce production costs without reducing utility. The manufacturing changes made for a more affordable revolver, though mechanically the Highway Patrolman is the same as the more ornate Model 27. A classic N-frame revolver, the Highway Patrolman is blued but it is not polished, saving labor costs. The top-strap and rounded areas of the frame are bead-blasted to achieve a matte appearance. The Highway Patrolman/Model 28 was in production from 1954 through 1986, and for most of its production run it was a steady seller with both police officers and recreational shooters."
