Default Police Positive .22 Cal.

Is it possible to tell from this picture approximately what the value is. It's a Colt Police Positive in .22LR. It's very well worn. If it had bluing , it's gone. Same with the checkering, very well worn. Just curious. It came from my grandfather so it's true value is there. It looks like the serial number is 33204 if that helps. Seems low to me but it's the only number I can find on it.

Best I've come up with is between 200 and 400 hundred buck. Anybody got a better range?

What is the last patent date on top of the barrel? If last patent date of july 4, 1905 it is an older Model G. If the date is Oct. 5, 1926 you have a later Model C.

I am only finding the Police Positive Target model in 22lr. They go from a low of $210 to a high of $1100. I would go with a book price of about $360 to $390. maybe a little lower.

Do you have the adjustable front sight with the bronze bead? Is it marked "Match"? anywhere?

I have a 1924 mfg Match Target in .22 and it is a lot of fun to shoot.

The last patent date is july 4, 1905. I guess that makes it an older Model G.
The front sight does appear adjustable. The rear sight is for windage.
I don't see the word target or match anywhere. Just police positive .22 cal.

Does the fact that this gun does not have Match or Target make it rare or just another plain not worth that much gun? I'm just curious because the true value is in the fact that it came from my grandfather. I have no intention of selling. Just curious and I can't find anything on anything except a Target model. Again, this has no such marking. Nor Match.
