Unequal door hinges and four rivet brake quadrant confirm that it is likely a '24. Most '25s had hinges that were equal length top and bottom, and had two rivet brake quadrants on the frame.
The big question is whether it has the high or low style cowl, hood, and radiator as well as the style of the front edge of the front fenders? Those separate '23 from '24.
Of course, sometimes parts did get changed over the years, and different assembly plants sometimes overlapped different parts.
Welcome to the affliction!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

You have the wrong nuts and bolts holding the rear wheel together. The should be carriage bolts with the head on the outside and single nut on the inside. After the nuts and bolts are in place the bolt is peened to keep the nut on. Uses a special nut that is thinner then what you buy in stores.

From the angle of the photos, I can't say for certain whether it is a high cowl or low cowl radiator etc. I think it is a high cowl, so '24. I can just see the fender's lower/inner lip which is also '24/'25.
Looks like maybe nice after-market headlamp lenses.
It looks like with just a bit of work that could be the perfect model T. Nice enough to be proud of, rough enough (older restoration) to not worry about little dings and scratches like setting a picnic basket on a fender while having fun! You can always touch them up with a spray can good black. That is my idea of the perfect model T.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

The little spring on the hand brake pawl is a home made remedy often used when the regular spring at the top of the lever gets weak. I have one like that on my '23 touring.

As you're new to this, here's something that may help: http://dauntlessgeezer.com/DG80.html
