    That appears to be the No.6, Series II double action revolver. It probably is chambered for .32 S&W or .32 S&W Long. They were made from 1886 to 1907. While in general, H&A revolvers were considerably better and better made than many of their contemporaries, I recommend that gun not be fired with modern ammo. It won't "blow up", but if anything breaks, there are no parts available.

    got one just like it that I paid $129 for a couple years back. It was retail back then. so I would say 150 tops and $100 wholesale
