    (crown over crown over U) has 206 on butt plate next to the ring octagon barrel and 3.6 stamped on cylinder.
    some of the info I'm finding says It's a German made Webley copy but nothing firm
    it will be in market place once I determine what it truly is
    more info I have come across


    [ Webly knock-off of probably German manufacture ]
    [ Are German commercial proofs up to 1912 ]

    [ At that time the state proof houses in Suhl, Zella-Mehlis, and Frankfurt agreed upon][ a nitro powder test]

    According to my reference material...

    That crown over N would be the East German Nitro Proof.

    My best guess is German Constabulary Revolver. Hopefully someone else can shed some light.
