"Claasic" Model 36 or old one?

I ran across a nickel-plated S&W Model 36 2" barrel in an LGS that is in unbelievably good condition - no sign of having been fired. Good price, too. Really good price if it's an old one. However, I don't know how to tell if it is one of the current production "Classic" revolvers or if it is an original one. It's a Model 36 (no dash). LGS guy said he doesn't know. Sorry if it's a dumb question but any tips?

Yeah, it hurt. Only consolation is that I have one already anyway and just wanted to add it to the collection. Here's my late '60s model with my Model 15:
That screams "old gun" to me.
Yep - Makes it earlier than 1982, I believe. I didn't see the pin when I first looked at it. I screwed the pooch on this one.:conehead:
A learning experience....next time just ask them to put it on hold most will
Not this guy - tried that when I first saw it. I wasn't shopping and didn't have any cash on me and he wanted 50% cash to hold it. I'll live but somebody got a deal.
