Depends on the serial number. If it was made after 2000, I don't think the serial number lookup on that above website will work. Walther follows a pretty strict dating scheme for their serial numbers. Here are the number codes for their proof mark to the right of 'DE' or 'Eagle over N' A = 0 B = 1 C = 2 D = 3 E = 4 F = 5 G = 6 H = 7 I/J = 8 K = 9. Presented today is an Ansley H.

Those guns were made by Iver Johnson as a trade, or second line, gun. In spite of that, they are reasonably well made, but do not have the IJ transfer bar safety. One report says they used parts acquired when they bought Forehand & Wadsworth, but that is probably not true, as Hopkins and Allen bought F&W. The gun dates from around 1900, and it is a pretty safe bet that it is chambered for.32 S&W.There is a mild collector interest in those old guns but only if in near new condition. In average condition or with broken/missing parts, they bring very little, $50 or so.

Dealers in some states won't even take those guns in trade since they are not worth the trouble of doing the paperwork to sell them, and if they break, they are not worth the time and effort to fix.Jim. I got most of the following information from Bill Goforth, expert on Iver Johnson and H&R guns. In about 1910, Iver Johnson went from black powder to smokeless. They had piles of old black powder parts left and wanted to do something with the parts but did not want degrade their revolvers, so they boutgh out a new line of guns. They produced both break top and solid frame in 22LR, 32 S&W, and 38 S&W.
The serial number on the out side my not be the correct and the correct serial number is under the left grip on the frame. These guns were made from about 1910 to 1935. After the black powder parts were used up, they used smokeless parts which would be OK for modern ammo, however I do not know the cut off date.
If there is no letter in front of the serial number, I would consider it black powder. I have a an early break top 38 S&W model made in 1911 and will not use it, it complete and works, but was very loose. I tighten it up, by using a small C-clam with very light touch at the break open point, so the metal is very soft.I paid 44.00 two years ago, but have seen a small frame break top 32 S&W for 109.00 at the shooting range and it was gone two weeks later.Hope this helps, Bill Goforth Iver Johnson book is sold out and 2ed edition is held up buy the publisher.
Savage Fox Serial Numbers
His new book on H&R gun shold be out soon. I hope those books come out soon. We are overdue for good books on those makers, and I would also like to see books on F&W and M&H. M&H guns were called the very best revolvers ever made in the U.S., but they are almost unknown today. The H&A story is also interesting and should be a good subject for a book length treatment.Quite a few collectors have decided to specialize in those 'cheap' guns, the so-called 'suicide specials' and the inexpensive solid frame and break top DA revolvers. The variations are endless, much research still has to be done, and (best of all) you can buy 25 or 30 of the less expensive ones for the price of one decent Colt SAA.And lessons can be learned. I just got a Merwin & Hulbert, and was surprised to find something I never saw before in the way the mainspring acts through a lever system to work as the trigger return spring.
That solves one of the major problems of revolvers of that era, trigger spring breakage.Jim. This email link is to reach site administrators for assistance, if you cannot access TFL via other means.
