    Looks like a nameless Belgian revolver from the 1890 to 1920 period.

    It was posted on a local forum so I don't physically have the gun.

    I'd like to help but I have two problems. One, your a Cowboys fan and as a Steelers fan I must hate you. Two, if you can't see any markings then I don't have a clue. The shape of the hammer is kinda cool though. :)

    I think it is called a charm, like for a charm bracelet. Has anyone else noticed that the gun in questioned is photographed on the back of a greeting card envelope?

    It is a .32 CF British Bulldog by Forehand & Wadsworth.

    The pistol has too much detail to be a charm, but it does look like it was photographed on an envolope. No clue

    It looks like a Harrington Richardson. The trigger guard and the barrel "vent rib" coincide with the pistols made by them in the late 1800's.
    They aren't worth much to collectors, but are still good guns, I've got one chambered in .32 S&W short, I don't shoot it anymore as the ammo is very expensive but it is a great wall hanger.
