    Trying to get an approximate value on a gun from my father's estate. I am not knowledgable about guns but believe the following is correct:

    Colt No 3 Derringer
    Type no. 1 Thuer Model 1875 - 1890 ?
    Seriel # 24891
    Ivory grips
    2.5" barrel
    41 calier
    single shot rim fire

    Welcome back.

    Your photos are a little better than those posted last year but the side views are still fuzzy. For detail, a camera with macro setting used in natural light is best.

    Flayderman's Guide states approx. 48,000 made ca. 1870-1912, which may date yours 1890s, and lists value range from $275 for Good condition to $650 for Fine condition. If the nickel plating is original (appears to be in top view) it should fall at top of that range, and the ivory grips will add a premium (assuming both are intact).
