Dollar value may not be much, but the other value? Think ahead about twenty years and what you tell the grandkids about it.

I would buy one to have as an additional home defense weapon.

These were made by Iver johnson's arms & cycle works from 1910 - 1935. They were offered in small frame a large frame and in three calibers: .38 centerfire, .32 centerfire and .22 rimfire. The main serial number is on the left gripframe, in order to see it, you need to remove the grip.

I played with a broken one of those when I was a kid. My father told me that when he married my mom (the late 1920s) the pistol was operational, and he jokingly told her "Hey woman, I want squirrel for dinner." My mom, who was 17 at the time, picked up the pistol, walked out to the nearby trees on the farm, fired one shot, and a squirrel dropped from the top of a tree. She turned to my Dad and said "I killed it, you skin it."
My Father told me "Son, I have always been nice to your mother since that day."

That's a neat find. I, too, came into a U.S. Revolver top-break revolver recently! It belonged to my grandpa when he was a kid (1910's-1920's-ish). It is quite worn and shows a lot of use. I have never fired it, but I think it is one cool little gun. Not worth much money, but has a lot of sentimental value.
BTW, by way of explanation, it had no grips when I got it, so excuse my crudely sanded S&W grips. I'll give it a better set of grips one of these days.
