Your Police Positive was made in 1930, making it a Second Issue.

It was re-patented from the 1905 (First Issue) and reads 1926 on the barrel as you know. They went to a slightly heavier frame and a serrated top strap and I am sure there were probably some other internal changes. Maybe some of the other members are more familiar with pre WWII weapons and can help you.
