Help on old 32 S&W

I have been working out of town away from my books and reference material and was asked by a coworker about his inherited Smith revolver, such as age or any other thing interesting. Value is not important as it is a family piece and as you can see not pristine. He was home last weekend and returned with pictures, but not as good as I would have liked him to take but I will post them. It says 32 S&W long CTG, 6" barrel, it looks like. I think pat dates of '05 and '07 and in nickel. Serial #2347xx.I know this ain't much but like I said I'm away from home and trying to do this on my smart phone. Any help would be great.
Thanks, Mark

It is a .32 Hand Ejector, model of 1903.
The serial number is high in the range for the 5th change, made 1910-1917, likely late in that period.
Six inch .32s are not real common, but not rare, and the condition looks original but not great.
