Good afternoon,

Can you tell me does it have a hammer, or is it hammerless?

What caliber is it?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
It has a hammer. I don't know the caliber. How do I determine that?
Expert:  ProShooter replied 5 years ago.
Caliber should be marked on it somewhere - how many shots does the cylinder hold?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Don't see any other markings on the exterior of the weapon other than "US Revolver Co." and "34660". It holds 5 shots
Expert:  ProShooter replied 5 years ago.
OK, it could either be .32 or .38 caliber if its a 5 shot. Value is the same for either. The U.S. Revolver Co. guns were actually made by a company called Ivor Johnson. Unfortunately, value on these neat old guns is not very high. They are not very much in demand, despite being rather popular in their day.

For your gun, the following current Blue Book values apply. Retail prices may be 20% higher:

Good condition --------------60% $95

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Ok, can I fire the gun?
Expert:  ProShooter replied 5 years ago.
You may still be able to fire it, but I would highly suggest having it checked by a gunsmith first to ensure that it is still functional and not damaged, and that it can handle modern ammo.
