I have pictures it’s an excellent condition the best I can find out it was made in 1897 we think. Can anyone tell me or confirm from photos or from the serial numbers what the gun would be worth?

You have an Iver Johnson 2nd Model Safety Hammer Automatic that was manufactured in 1898. It is chambered in .32 S&W and is considered a blackpowder frame. It is not sage for modern smokeless ammunition.

It has been re-nickled as the trigger guard, trigger and hammer would not have originally been nickle plated.

Not sure where you came up with ladies pistol. These were a common personal defense gun from the late 1890's thru the 1940's or so. It were smaller than the larger. 38 S&W versions and easier to conceal.
