Great find and very nice gun.

A little too new to be a Post War Transitional Model though. Those were "6 screw" guns counting the leaf spring tension screw and all had the 1/2 round sight.

Your .32 Hand Ejector 5 screw does look like the gun at the upper right of the photo because that's what it is, and notice it's labeled "Post-war Late Improved I-frame" with a ramped front sight and barrel rib. The 2nd gun on the left in the photo is a Transitional Model, notice the half round sight. It's happens to be a .32 Regulations Police version hence has square butt stocks. But the .32 Hand Ejector Transitional model is the same except for stocks.

The bottom gun on the left is the .32 Hand ejector Early Improved I-frame 5 screw and still has the half round sight.
