H&R was a maker of "basic" handguns. They worked and were reasonably priced. They made a boat load of them and they sold like hotcakes. Because the market is flooded with specimens, they to not bring big dollars like a Smith and Wesson or Colt. Yours seems to be in unusually good condition, but that will only add a few dollars to the previously mentioned $100 price tag.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
