    What you have there is a second model Harrington & Richardson "American" revolver, chambered in .32 S&W long. First model Americans were chambered for black powder, the second model was chambered for smokeless. They were made between 1904 and 1942 with serial numbers going up into the 700,000 range. This one was probably made around 1915 or so. Value range would be in the $50 to $75 range at auction.

    And what is lost on most including those legions of 'sellers' who make momentary appearances saddled with unrealistic $$$ expectations on 'Pawn Stars' is that auction houses take anywhere from 20% - 30 % of the selling price for their effort.
