Yours is older, as the pin is retained by a screw entering from the front of the frame, and would require the use of a screwdriver to get the pin out to remove the cylinder. Examples with this style of retaining screw were not marked with the rampant horse logo. The faint numbers you see on the frame are the patent dates.
    Correct you are BAW. Check very closely on the flat area under the frame in front of the trigger guard to see if by mear chance the serial numbers remain, should be below the 165,000 range if still ledgeable, you could find year of manufacture then. Probably cut down to use as a close range belly gun. Some old timers were skilled at point and shoot though. Neat find.
