    Look at gunbroker completed auctions. Bigger auction houses like RIA might have comparable listings

    The trigger guard was added after the fact. Unfortunately that is going to significantly hurt any collector value that it had.

    It’s a shame because it looks like it was a reasonably nice piece.

    The engraving appears to be spanish in origin. I’m guessing this is a copy and not a s&w.

    Possibly a .38 Double Action, third model circa 1880’s. If that is a factory engraved gun, it is worth some decent money. You can get a smith and wesson factory letter from the smith and wesson historical association for $100. If you decide to sell it, go through a reputable auction house, like RIA.

    Don’t sell this one. You can own this without a license in any state, with any background. Just a heads up if one of your concerns ever becomes legality.

    As of right now the market is too fucked to sell this and get a great price. Hang onto this baby
