What is the value of a 22 caliber Cody-Thunderbird revolver model 46-22?

I had one of these back in the early 1960s (as a teenager) and I think I paid $5.00 for it. It was a very unreliable revolver, wore out quickly and I think I ended up giving it to somebody for parts; It was the butt of many jokes among my friends for years, including that it had a picture of a buffalo taking a s*** on each grip. I did see one at a gun show about 10 years ago (much to my friends' amusement), that had a price tag on it of $195.00. No one bought it, and, although I was tempted to make an offer on it, common sense prevailed over nostalgia. Don't know if this will help you at all, but I think the old adage: "It's worth whatever someone will pay for it." applies here.

Two goals of the anaconda plan?

1. Establish a blockade of Northern ships around the Southern State's coastline; and

2. Prevent the South from exporting cotton and receiving supplies.

The third part of General Winfield Scott's plan was to take control of the Mississippi River. This would enhance the Union's use of this major waterway by having it act as a supply route and transportation of troops vis the river instead of railways and roads. Large cargo loads would be made possible via the river.
