You have the Smith & Wesson .32 Double Action, probably the 3rd Model, made around 1883. The .32 DA 2nd Model highest serial number was 22172, then the 3rd Model was introduced at 22173. In typically found condition, these trade at $150-$250 but really excellent examples can reach $500. If those are actual IVORY grips, add about $75-$100. sales@countrygunsmith.net
