    I don't believe I've ever seen one quite like this. No markings that I can see on pistol. Haven't measured it myself but believe it is 75 cal. Any ideas? Thanks.

    You have what appears to be a Spanish Miquelet Percussion lock pistol. ( please correct me if I am wrong)
    Most of these pistols are one of a kind and you most likely will not find any proof marks.
    As to value, I have no idea. Oh, I forgot to mention this is the first time I have ever seen one without a lot of engraving.

    I'll second grcsat's assessment, definitely a miquelet and most likely Spanish.
