Default Welcome from Virginia - nice gun!

Welcome to the Forum.

I agree with other's in that you appear to have a 22-32 HFT, and depending on the s/n (the six digits on the fore strap), probably in the 1920's like already said.

If you want to see what they looked like when leaving the factory almost 106 years ago (Sept 20, 1915 to be exact) check the pics below. The box is original and numbered to the gun, as well as a bronze bore brush wrapped in original "rice" paper.

Like also said above, value will depend upon more pictures so condition (cosmetically) can be ascertained. If you have the gun in hand you would need to inform us of mechanical condition (cylinder end play, end shake, hammer push-off, etc.).

For some exact details from the S&W Historical Foundation, consider sending for a factory Letter of Authentication..they can assist you with pinning down original details.
