Looking for a price on a S&W N frame 50 year commerative .357. The gun has gold enlays, presentation box and has never been fired. I have photos, but try as I might, I cannot get them to down load. Very minor rotation mark on cylinder. Any help appreciated. I can email photos if you need to see them.

If it's been fired (or has rotation marks) it's basically worth the same price as the standard model -- these guns typically have two price spikes.

The 1st is when they are first issued and this, depending on how ornate it is, will last until the next one comes out with the price gradually declining.

The 2nd one is when those who bought them first sell for a profit the price will spike again but not quite as high.

After that unless the gun is really unusual the price will usually drop to near the pricee of the standard model.

And what little gold is in the "inlays" is very little and they really aren't inlays ---- just a very, very, very thin coating in the areas of the printing etc.
