This is a .32 Safety Hammerless 2nd model, from the mid-late 1900 decade. It has likely been refinished so its value is lower than of an original gun in equal condition.

That would be a 32 Safety, 2nd Model shipped around 1908. It has been refinished at some point, with the sideplate edges clearly showing some minor rounding and the S&W logo partially gone. Also, the hammer and top latch were originally blued, even on nickel guns. There were almost a quarter-million made, so value is low, maybe $150 to $200.
