    I have found a older U.S. Revolver Co. .22 caliber, 7 shot pistol. The serial number is 59749, found under the trigger guard. The number repeats under the grip frame under the left grip panel. The gun is in good condition and seems to function correctly. Can you tell me when it was manufactured and appoximate worth? Thanks.
