Hi Tracer,and welcome to the Forum. Your .22 O.P. appears to be made in 1940. The "T" is NOT part of the serial ##. It means the revolver was "Targeted" or actually shot,and the fixed sights lined up by turning the barrel slightly to get the windage dead center,not left or right. This is "a good sign" to see. The "H" is probably the mark of another assembler or inspector. I am assuming that it has the standard 6" barrel,as measured from the cylinder. They had a "rarer" 4" model in .22 after 1950 or so. I have a 4" & 6" .22 O.P. that I love to shoot. Man,value is hard to judge,but in your favor are the box,tools etc. My guess is between $450-650. Prices tend to be regional also_Of course,if a well healed Colt collector who just has to have the box etc,sees it and wants it,it'll be higher. Hope this helps some. Bud
