We think it is a .38 3rd Model Frontier. Breaks open on top. Trigger guard is squared on one end. Serial number is 255405
Does it have an exposed hammer or is the hammer concealed? If it's a concealed hammer it will also have a grip safety.
The serial number has a "C" stamped above it. The serial number is "189xx". In the ejector relief of the frame it is stamped "7s151
See pic for serial number location:
