    this is the iver johnson's arms & cycle works model 50 sidewinder. the model 50/50A was in production between 1961 and 1978. iver johnson furnished montgomery wards with this revolver in 1961 and 1962, marking them as your is. there are no known factory serial numbers records for this and other iver johnson 50 series solid frame revolvers. i do know that serial number started for the model 50 sidewinder at E1 and went to well over E50000 before production stopped in 1978. so this is an early production revolver most likely first year(1961).

    the information i am furnishing the blue book for their 30th edition is, model 50/50A sidewinder 1961-1978 100%=$250 down to 60%=$120 less 10% for fixed sights, which this revolver has.

    the montgomery wards markings do not add value or take any away.
