Hi, I'm trying to learn more about this gun. It has a Double Crown over a 'U' on the barrel. Any help would be great.

Belgian commercial percussion pistol from the mid 1800s.

It was either made or proved for sale in German; the double crowns over U are German proof marks. Actually, inexpensive percussion pocket pistols like that were made in every country that had even the rudiments of a firearms industry, including the U.S. With few exceptions, they are considered novelties, with little collector value or interest.
