1255 is the serial number. The gun is an 1899. This was called the .38 Military and Police first model. identified by the lack of a locking lug on the bottom of the barrel and the straight barrel profile with no flare where it meets the frame. Looks beautiful for being 122 years old.

WOW! Yours is within 50 of mine! :D That's just gorgeous! Mine shipped June 1900.
Only proviso is: avoid jacketed ammo.
