    I have a handed down IJ 32 cal 3" round barrel serial number G40846. Same number on the trigger guard but no letter. It has about 75% nickel in nice shape excellent rifling in bore. Single flat leaf hammer spring. trigger safety built in.

    Can anyone tell me what its worth?
    Thx

    Welcome to TFF, but something's wrong with your info:

    The G serial number prefix was not used on .32 hammerless models.

    There is no caliber indication on the gun - definitely a G before the number - is it a 38? the chamber looks smaller...to me.

    Caliber was not marked on the old I.J.s.

    If the chambers measure about 3/8" diameter, it's an antique .38 S&W caliber made in 1898.
