Help identifying .32 revolver

Hello, I need help identifying and dating a revolver of my grandfathers. It is very old.... was his dad's pistol who was born in 1905. My grandfather said he probably bought it used ,though, and it could be about as old as his dad was. It shoots great. Anyway, it is a .32 caliber revolver, double action, 5" barrel, six shoooter. The only markings it has on it are " 32 LONG CTG" on the barrel, "SPAIN" behind the trigger guard on the bottom side of the gun, and a serial number of 18466 on the bottom of the handle (grip). Here are a few pictures. I would like to know about how old it is and the manufacturer. If anyone has any information for me, it would be greatly appreciated.

I went to the Smith and Wesson website last night and saw people posting about similar guns. They said if it says "Spain" on the gun, then it's not a S&W. I guess they made a lot of lookalikes during that time. I'm sure the gun is very old, but not a S&W. And no, there isn't a logo of any kind on the gun. It's probably not worth very much, but it is to me since it was my great grandfather's gun. Still would like to know a little bit more about it. Thanks for the info.
