Dear Rand,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. My sincere apologies for the delay with the appraisal.

The presented object appears to be a Colt Model 1977 Lightning .38 double-action revolver. It has the serial number 138769 which dates this piece to the year 1901.
Comparable objects were recently offered and sold on the international auction market. 
This piece is in medium condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 400 to 700 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
