If you have access to today's handgun values, would you look up the IVERSON Hammerless Revolver Pistol, .32cal, LNIB. Original box, papers, cleaning brush. Thanks in advance for your effort.

Uh, I don't see any manufacturer by that name in my book. Could it be Iver Johnson?

sorry, don't have a handbook on firearm value, but I do have a handarm on firebook value, is that any help??? NO seriously, I've never heard of an IVERSON.

If it's an Iver Johnson Safety Hammerless, then this is what I found: .32S&W or .38S&W cal., 2,3(.32 only),3 1/4, 5 or 6 inch barrel, double action only, break open, fixed sights, rubber grips, blue or nickel. Mfg, 1895-1950. It shows 100% = $125.00 Seems kinda low to me. My source is the Blue Book Of Gun Values, Twenty First Edition. Interesting looking handgun.

Price guides for firearms are always worthless for the most part. They are only a general guide for pricing and are most often unrealistic as compared to the actual market. The editors of these rags seem to interject their own likes (price things exorbitantly high) and dislikes (worth less than whale shit) rather than accurately convey what the market will or will not bear. If it's any help, Iver Johnson firearms rarely command any monetary value of any significance. This is not to say that the piece is junk, but that collectors haven't created that niche for them as yet.

I just checked my Guntracker 2.0 software and there is no listing of Iverson as a manufacturer. There was however, an Iver Arms listing; and they had quite a few revolvers. I did not really go further because your posting was kinda generic,i.e.
Iverson Hammerless Revolver Pistol, .32cal,

I'd look for it under Iver Arms but they all have names like Colt puts on their firearms, you know...Anaconda,Python..blah..blah..blah. You get my point, right. Alex

Hmmm, I don't have a listing for Iver Arms either. Just Iver Johnson Arms Inc. And, yeah, the price guides are just a reference source. Hopefully no one here uses just the books when making a purchase.

It is an Iver Johnson. Thanks to all those who took the trouble to look it up, and correct me.
