    Some kind of Bulldog. Without proofmarks and other markings, that's as far as I can go. Somebody else might be willing and able to go farther based on familiarity with the lines of the piece.

    Looks like a typical latter 1800s Belgian rendering/plagerism/copy of the erstwhile 'Webley' British 'Bull Dog' type Revolver, chambering possibly a dimensional equivelent of the .38 S & W Cartridge.

    They ( the British Make ones, and, the Belgian copies ) were very popular in several Calibres in their day...both in Europe and in the Americas...ranging from .32 Calibre to .50 Calibre.

    One in this condition, and in this Calibre, if all the parts are present and correct, would tend to change hands for a couple hundred dollars at most, ( but likely less ) if it is mechanically good.

    The Webley or other British Maker 'Bull Dogs', of course tend to change hands for more...but condition is always important and poor condition lowers the value which would be assigned, of course.

    The Hammer seen on the example shown, appears unusually crude even for a poor copy, and, may be a home made replacement.

    It's almost a ringer for a British Bulldog, which did come in .38. However, the hammer is wrong.

    It's probably a Spanish or Belgian copy.

    I'm positive that if the cylinder is remove, on the face of the clyinder you will find an oval or circle with the letters ELG and will it be surmounted by a crown.

    It could be a genuine Bulldog with a hammer replaced by bubba.

    In truth, it is a rare gun made by the Societe de Junque, in Lowbar, Belgium, in 2652 AUC. Its value can only be calculated in Zyzzyszistanian dinars which are worth even less than U.S. dollars, if that is possible.

    I'd say in that condition, given prices of similar stuff locally $75 would be "all the money" .
