Old Official Police help

A neighbor just had me look at an old Official Police from her late husband and I can't seem to exactly identify,,,,need help.
Gun is nickel (possibly re-nickel) Colt Official Police 6" 38Spl. which is fairly clear to see on the side of the barrel. On the top of the barrel it says patent dates Aug. ? 1884 July 4, 1905. Is this a regular Official Police Pre-War or what, the patent dates have me a little thrown?
