Default Need help with antique Bacon single shot

I have an antique Bacon .32 rim fire pistol that Flayderman does not list. It has a 6" barrel that is half round and half octagon. There are front and rear sights on the barrel. The correct inscriptions are on the top of the octagon part of the barrel. Serial numbers are found under the barrel, on the pivot screw and under the left grip. ( number 19).
I am new to this sight and am not sure how to post photos. Any help will be welcome.

Bogie- when you are typing a reply, look above where you are typing. See the white smiley face? To the right of it is a paperclip. Click on paperclip, browse, highlight the pic you want, download, close. Come back to reply screen, click paperclip again, except now you will see file name. Click that, and paste into your reply. The pistols are fairly scare- Bacon or Bacon & Bliss?

I sure hope I did this right. A few more details about the markings on the barrel.On the top flat is "Bacon Mfg. Co. Norwich, Conn.". The photos I took were done with a camera thirteen years old (still uses a floppy disc), so the quality may not be up to snuff.
"Flayderman's Guide to Antique Firearms" lists three varieties of the single shot. Large Frame Type, Small Frame Type, Small Brass Frame Type. The barrel lengths listed are 4" and 5". As you can see in the photos the barrel is 6" long.
Does anyone out there have a Bacon like this?
