You have a .38 Safety Hammerless 5th Model, manufactured from 1907 to 1940 in the SN range 220000 to 261493. Note that the barrel marking is actually "38 S.& W. CTG" indicating the gun is chambered for the .38 S&W cartridge (different from .38 S&W Special). Condition is important in valuing these older guns. Yours looks to be in reasonably good shape from the photo, so I'd say somewhere around $350 to $400 or so.
