They were offered for sale in the 70s, and aren't worth very much. They don't turn up for sale very often as they were considered a "Saturday Night Special" and in this case, it's largely true. There's usually problems with the lock up, so you might not want to fire it. They're best taken to gun buy back programs.
Among the lowest quality firearms ever built in a factory, value of a specimen in excellent condition would be $25-$50.
Requires professional appraisal
Gun Broker " .32 IJ Detective 1900 Nickel plated, condition fair (Not a shooter)= +/- $150.
50 or so
@ 75 USD
I just saw a blued one in a gun store in Costa Mesa Ca. on sales for $275.00
Who made it? What is the serial number? What is the overall condition? What is the barrel length? Single or Double Action? Without knowing these items you could be a price range from 1-10000 USD.
The Clerke revolver is generally considered the cheapest/worst made revolver... Ever. You might be able to get me to take it off your hands if you paid me enough.
10-100 USD or so
Turn of the century or so. Seldom worth more than 100 USD
Take it to a firearms dealer. They may either buy it from you, or place it on consignment sale for you.
Need more details; 50-2000 USD possible.
say about 1874. condition depends on price
Trade Name. Inexpensive; @ turn of the century; nominal value (10-100 USD)
These are highly collectable guns, HOWEVER- collector's value is based on exact make, model CONDITION and ORIGINALITY. The only specimens of these I have seen were blued, not nickel. If the nickel is original, value may run as high as $800- $1000. If it has been refinished (plated at a later time) value may be $100-$200. This will need a hands on appraisal from someone that knows antique firearms. Difference in value between a 95% gun and a 90% gun is significant.
Impossible to answer without a detailed description of all markings, finish, condition, accessories, box, papers, etc..
Made by H&R. In V.Good to Excellent $245-285.
$325 in excellent down to $55 in poor condition. Add $45 if you have both cylinders and $20 more if it is nickel plated instead of blued.
No, not really. A .32 S&W Long caliber gun is not considered powerful by today's standards.
Well, I don't know specifically what a Clerke 1'st .22 long is worth, but I do know a Clerke 1'st firing a .32S&W goes for anywhere from $70 to $80 depending on condition and I also know that .22 caliber versions of revolvers usually cost a bit less, so I'd venture to say somewhere in the $50 to $65 range.
sounds like the break open series. they were made from late 1800's to early 1900's with little records keeping.
