328815 was made in 1914.
The serial numbers that year started at 328000.
1915 started at 329500.
This would make it a smokeless powder frame with the push button cylinder retention bolt.
If you'd like to find out more details on your Colt, you can buy a Colt Archive letter.
This is a museum quality letter that will tell you in what configuration it left the factory, such as caliber, barrel length, any non-standard features like nickel finish and custom order grips etc, WHEN it was shipped, and WHO it was shipped to.
Since a good many older Colt Single Actions have been modified, refinished with other finishes, and even had calibers changed, this is the only way to know for sure how it was originally made.
The letter will often add value to the gun, and many of the old Colt's were shipped to interesting buyers.
