Looks like it was made in 1945, it's 5 years older than mine. :)
Found here www.proofhouse.com
I will let others discuss value.

Photos would be a big plus in guesstimating some value, but if you head over to gunbroker and search "official police" you get asking prices ranging from $285 on upwards of $600 (more for .22lrs than the .38s).
Ballpark ask of $250 until you have photos that offer more value... but few people want the old police pony anymore it seems.

here are some pictures, most of the bluing is very nice and glossy, only a little wear around the edges, the bore looks perfect, looks like this pistol was hardly fired.
