    Hi guys,
    I need some help with finding the estimated value of a gun. I took some pictures and I hope I am posting them correctly.
    The words and numbers on the gun are sort of hard to see but it looks like it says, "FOREHAND ARMS CO WORCESTER MASS. USA PAT.JAN.11NOV.29 87JAN.3 88". On the butt of the gun, it has "311404". It's a six shot. I appreciate any and all help. Thank you!

    Welcome to the forum. Forehand & Wadswoth became Forehand Arms in 1890 and was taken over by Hopkins & Allen in 1902, so your gun falls in that period. It was made for black powder cartridges and should not be fired with current smokeless powder ammo. It has low collector value, probably $100 or less in condition shown.
