Hi everyone. I just purchased (via online auction) a 3rd model 38 nickel plated 3.25 inch barrel. Can someone advise the manuf year based on serial number on grip C29208 ?

You have an Iver Johnson 3rd Model Safety Hammer Automatic manufactured in 1910. It is chambered in .38 S&W and is considered a smokeless frame. It should be safe for modern smokeless ammunition once you have it checked out by a competent gunsmith.

Looks like someone removed the mainspring at one time and put it back crooked.

Thank you for this info! Very much appreciated.
