I'm from Brazil and I have a .38 caliber S&W revolver that I think be dated between 1910 and 1920 the S/N is 196147. Could anyone give me any idea when it might be dated?
1) Does the barrel inscription read .38 S&W CTG. or .38 S&W SPECIAL CTG.?

2) How many cartridges does it hold?

3) Do you open the cylinder by swinging it out to the left-hand side, or do you open it by tilting the barrel down and the cylinder up?

4) If you open the cylinder by tilting the cylinder up, does the gun have a visible hammer? If so, does it have to be thumb-cocked for each shot, or does it self-cock when you pull the trigger?

5) Do you have pictures?
