Thank you for your interest in our Firearms Appraisal service. The information you provided was used to properly identify the information below. Here is the information you requested about your Firearm taken from www.bluebookofgunvalues.com..
.
.
Manufacturer - Harrington & Richardson
Model - Premier Second Model Small Frame Top Break R.F. & C.F., Third variation
Serial no. - 205055
Year of manufacture - 1909 to 1913 (more defined info not available)
Estimated Value Range –see below..

Description - .22 rimfire or .32 S&W cal., double top post barrel latch, 5 or 7 shot, automatic cylinder stop, nickel finish with case hardened hammer and barrel latch, 2, 3 (standard), 4, 5, and 6 in. barrel, caliber markings on left side of barrel, manufactured for smokeless powder cartridge pressures.

For your firearm, the following current values apply (from the Blue Book of Gun Values). Retail prices may be 20% higher. Percentages are based on the amount of original finish on the gun, and its operational ability. Values are in US Dollars..

New in box/perfect --100% condition - $265
Mint condition --------98% condition - $235
Excellent condition -- 95% condition - $200
Very Good+ condition -- 90% condition- $160
Very Good condition ------ 80% condition - $135
Good+ condition ------------70% condition - $110
Good condition --------------60% condition - $100
.
Add 20% for guns with a 5 in. barrel
Add 20% for .22 rimfire cal.

I could not locate a schematic online for the gun, but there may be one out there that can be found with some additional research. Parts are going to be somewhat difficult to find, but Numrich Gun Parts does carry some here - http://www.gunpartscorp.com/Manufacturers/HarringtonRichardson-33274.htm A gunsmith may also be able to fashion replacement parts for you. Unfortunately, the cost of making/buying replacement parts may outweigh the value of the gun. Sadly, there isn't great demand today for guns like this.

Sincerely,

This Firearm appraisal is a value estimate on the appraised firearm for the date of the appraisal. The value quoted is a real world market value (also known as a private party value) and is the amount you should expect to pay for the firearm. This is not an appraisal for retail or wholesale purposes.The information and values in this appraisal are compiled from a variety of sources including the current editions of the Blue Book of Gun Values , my internal reference library, my network of Firearms experts across the United States, firearms auctions, and through various online sites.

The values in this appraisal are based on recent sales of comparable and similar firearms taking into account the rarity, desirability, and overall original condition of the firearm. In the case that a comparable sale is not readily available, the value is based on a projected amount that the firearm would be expected to sell for.All information compiled in this firearm evaluation using the Blue Book of Gun Values online database and Photo Percentage Grading System is copyrighted 2015 by Blue Book Publications, Inc. and may not be used for any other purpose without written permission from the publisher.
