Default Transition model .32HE ?

Attached are photos of my recently purchased .32 Hand ejector. It has a number of features that make me believe it is a transition model. I would like to try and date it. Your help is always appreciated.
Serial no. 602252 My guess would be 95%

(From 4th edition S&W)

2 in barrel - post 1940
5 screw- pre 1956
coil spring instead of leaf spring - circa 1953
1.25 in cylinder
serrated trigger
ramp site - ? not round site
logo on left side Smith & wesson on left side of barrel, 32 long ctg on right side of barrel, 4 line address on right frame.
grips numbered to gun
box numbered to gun
Looks like gun in upper right corner of photo on page 144
