I am doing research for a gun of my wife's grandfather. It is an Iver Johnson's Arms & Cycle Works, Fitchburg, Mass. USA five shot owl head.

From the research I have done I am thinking it is a .32 S&W, black powder I have included pictures of everything I can think of.

S\N from under the trigger guard: 10540

S\N (from under the grips) : T10540

Would like to know the generation (i.e. first, second generation) etc.:

Would like to know the value?

Would also like to know the age?

Any help you can provide is much appreciated.

O.K. this is an easy one!
That revolver is a 2nd Model chambered in .38S&W and was made in 1907.
It was designed for use with black powder ammunition.
The blued finish was a factory upcharge option (nickel plating was standard).
Provided it's in mechanically good condition with a good bore and chambers which I suspect it is based on the condition of the finish. Blue Book value would be around $150-$175.
