Welcome to the wonderful world of H&R firearms:
With that set of patent dates - You have a 1st Model PREMIER 3rd Variation made between 1897-98. It is a black powder model, small frame, auto ejecting, either 7 x .22 long or 5 x .32 S&W (rare chance it is .32 rim fire). Tell me a bit more about it and I can tell you a bit more about value:
barrel length: 3, 4, 5 or 6"
finish: Nickel or blue (plating on trigger guard or blued?)
caliber: .22 or .32
grip panels: black, hard rubber, Mother-of-pearl, walnut, Ivory???
The above ID is based solely upon the accuracy of the info presented - I've been fooled before.
The pic below represents a very early in production 1st Model 1st Variation in kind of crappy condition - but one of few examples I've come across. Note the Nickel plated trigger guard.
