A lot of if's involved here. Let me just post that the serial number range for the 38 Special Hand Ejector, Military and Police ( prior to 1957 the Model -10 was called the M&P ) from 1909 -1915, ran from 146900 through 242701.

Extrapolating a bit, it was made around 1912.

A picture of your old revolver would help identification. Its probably a S&W M&P hand ejector but there are a lot of varations.
