Hello again Leon,
What you have described is a Colt 1908 Hammerless 25 ACP (aka Vest Pocket) made in 1920.It is a John Browning design that was also made by FN for sales in Europe .
As for it's value,I don't have a current Blue Book of Gun Values to look in and we need more info on it's condition(Blued or Nickle and how much remains,has it been refinished,are the grips in good condition,not chipped or worn smooth etc.).

Hello Leon and welcome.
For a general idea of "Blue Book" values,
a blue mdl., 60% lists at $155.00 and 100%- $575.00
Please do add more info and a pic if you can.
Check back and post often.

Thanks for the replys. It has little if any rust or pits. Blueing is good (no re blue). Has some rub marks on both sides of the front of the slide. I have a digital camera so if you will turor me on how, I will send pictures. Leon
