The "Y" number in the open cylinder crane are assembly numbers,,,
The Serial number is what is on the butt of the grips.

You seem to have a S&W M&P (Military and Police) chambered for .38 Special cartridges.

After 1957 S&W started using Model numbers for their guns,,,
The M&P became the Model 10 at that time.

There are several different iterations of your gun,,,
I'm not expert enough to detail those for you.

Suffice it to say you have a vintage handgun that should shoot modern ammo just fine,,,
Avoid shooting any .38 Special ammo labeled "+P" in your gun,,,
Regular .38 special ammo should be just fine.

I hope that helps,,,
