Hi,
I recently "liberated" a revolver from my father, whom had previously liberated it from his father-in-law years ago. Reading many posts in this forum, I've come to the conclusion that it is a 3rd Model small frame Safety Automatic. Now just curious what year it may have been produced. Based on other similar Serials I'm guessing early-mid '20s.

Thanks

You have an Iver Johnson 3rd Model 2nd Variation Safety Automatic manufactured in 1923. It is considered a smokeless frame and should be safe for smokeless ammunition after you have it checked out by a competent gunsmith.

Thank you. While cleaning it (who knows when or if it ever had been) I noticed the firing pin is frozen forward. I don't have anything that small to push that tiny pin out. So, off to the gunsmith it will go.
