I am trying to ascertain the value this pistol. See the attached pictures of the .38 caliber handgun. It appears that the serial number is 018 71. The frame and cylinder are both marked with that number. The latest patent date on the barrel is 1873. The handgun is in very good condition with minor pitting on the top of the barrel bridge and frame. Other than that it looks great! Please advise. thanks. Gerhardt

The resale price is highly dependent on the market you sell in. A lot of people lump the Merwin & Hulberts in with Iver Johnson and H & R. In that environment you might be offered $175. The Merwin & Hulbert should be placed in more of a premium class though.

In a just world, M&H AND Iver Johnson revolvers would be worth more than Colts. Sadly the OP's revolver would fetch $350 or less at a gun show, and $250 or less at a local store - despite being in great shape.
