    I have a Harrington & Richardson five shot hammerless revolver with pearl handles. Patent dates are Oct 4 '87, Apr 2 '95, Apr 7 '96. Serial # is 49028. You have to remove the barrel to see the serial #. It has a blue finish. Barrel length is 2 15/16" from front face of cylinder to muzzle. Under the pearl handle it has the number 9028 stamped.

    What's it worth? How can I get it legally to someone who will appreciate it?

    Thanks,

    Paul Tucker
