My Wilson: "Colt, An American Legend" also says 1901 is the year your revolver is produced.
Your revolver is a good looking one and a reasonable example for either a Colt collector or a U. S. military collector. I would think that $500 would be a fair price for all concerned should the revolver be sold.
You did well by not attempting to straighten the ejector rod. I don't know how to advise you to correct that small problem but a gunsmith could correct it easily.
Those old revolvers or fun to shoot on a pleasant afternoon. Be certain and use .38 Long Colt ammunition or at least specially prepared handloads using mild powder charges and hollow base bullets. .38 Special ammunition will fit and might even work. It also might damage the revolver and that would be a shame.
A knowledgeable handloader can produce safe and effective .38 Long Colt performance in .38 Special cases. One would not want to confuse standard .38 Special ammunition with the special loads if he chose to go this route to prepare some shooting ammunition for the old revolver.
