With that serial number and patent date, it would be the .32-20 Hand Ejector, Model 1905, Second Change. About 11,700 were made between 1907 and 1909. Yours would have been about midway in production, so 1908 would be a good bet. Value in like-new condition will run $500; one in average condition will run about $200-225.

The pearl grips don't add much if anything to the value (they were common at the time) and can detract if chipped or broken.
