I have been given a iver johnson .38 revolver 5 shot as an inheritance. The serial number is 71733. Does any one know how to find out the year it was manufactured by the serial number?

Need more information. Is it a hammer gun or hammerless? Small frame or large. In any case, the REAL serial number is located under the left grip panel and should be a 5 digit number (hopefully matching the one you have already found), preceded by a letter. The letter is key to determining the year of manufacture. If you need help identifying which model of IJ you have, post some pictures and we can probably identify it for you.
