My copy of Flayderman's Guide says there are no books devoted to the arms of Frank Wesson and his successor companies, but I have a very old copy of this reference and I believe there has been at least one published since then, possibly by B. Goforth. Do a web search for him and maybe something will come up.

Your Flayderman's Guide completely missed one book on the H&R, by author Joseph Vorsiek.

Harrington & Richardson Arms Co., A Short Illustrated History of194 pages, about 8 1/2" x 11" glossy soft-cover in full color. Newly reprinted with permission.And there i the book Mr Goforth i working on.

As of mid-January 2011: the Goforth book is in final stages of completion before printing begins. It should be on the shelves within 3 months, or less. This book will be the first of its kind, dealing ONLY with H&R Firearms made between the period 1871 and 1986. It will be comprehensive and have quite a few pictures.

Actually, that is nickelplating, not chrome. These were commonly made by Colt, Smith & Wesson, Harrington & Richardson, Iver Johnson- and just about any company that made a .32 revolver. There have probably been more than 100 makers of these revolvers.

Value of any gun is based on make, model, and condition. There were dozens of different models of the H&R top break revolvers in .38 S&W- could be $50 or $250.

Unaware of any model by that number. Do you mean 11-48?
