The pic is a little blurry and there is not much info there...
What is at the top of the grips? Is it S&W?
What are the barrel markings? Does it say "Smith and Wesson" or does it say ".38 (or .32) Smith and Wesson cartridge"?
It looks like a Smith, but this was one of the most often and quite shamelessly copied firearms in history. More info and clearer picture needed.

It appears to be a 3rd model double action revolver. Should be chambered for .38 S&W (not .38 S&W Special).

It looks to be in remarkably good condition. There are a BUNCH of these floating around, but not many in that kind of condition. 95+% condition will significantly raise the value.

I have a S&W catalog, but I need more information to find it.

What type of info do you need CA357?

S & w ?
It looks like a turn of the century 1900 Smith & Wesson, but it if it is is should be plainly marked. Most of those small revolvers were either chambered in .32 or .38 Smith & Wesson (not 38 special). I have a couple of them in the safe, but I haven't looked at them in years. They are not worth a lot, mainly just a novelty because there are a lot of them out there. Yours appears to be in excellent condition.

Any rollmark information on there should help me locate it. (I hope)
