Default Help confirm please - M&P 1905 1st Update

Hi Folks, after some hours on Google and the forum, I think I have a 1905 1st Update, circa 1907 and am looking to confirm and get a sense of value.

This 5 screw model has serial number 108xxx on the butt without any letter prefixes.

Based on blued trigger and hammer, its refinished. Appears it was a good job done some time ago and its new skin is in nice shape with only holster wear on the front of the barrel. Under that blue there is a good amount of wear on the fine thumb crosshatch of the hammer with smoothing at the high spot. Sights have lost their sharp corners.

There is no patent date on the barrel, just the side markings. I see no other external serial numbers. Just a sequence or part number in the yolk which I understand is not helpful. I have not pulled the side plate.

Mechanically it seems to function fine and I have not fired it.

Appreciate any thoughts. Thanks!
