H&R top break model identification needed

Well, I've read just about all of the posts and replies on H&R .32 S&W top break identification, and of course I haven't run across one like mine, so I need help, please:

Top Rib reads "Harrington & Richardson Arms Company Worcester, Mass. USA Patent Oct 8, 1895" (two lines)
Marking on left side of barrel "32 S.&W. CTGE"
4" barrel, cylinder is 15/16", 5-shot, auto-ejectors, gun is all blued, black hard rubber "target" grips. S/N 256xxx

Gun is in fantastic shape, owned by my ex-wife's grandfather to keep the rabbits out of his garden, rarely shot.

Any help on model I have, approximate year of mfr, and value (although it won't be going anywhere) would be much appreciated!

IMO you most likely have an H&R "Automatic Ejecting" model, unless it's a concealed hammer design (you haven't mentioned the hammer style), in which case it's an H&R "Hammerless" model (that was made in both a small & large frame ).
