ID help?

It looks to be one of these two models and I think the date on the barrel is 1889 not 1880 but need a better pic. That's a .32 cal, not easy to find ammo for but a very cool fin piece I have a colt that's very similar also in .32, it's fun but I suck with it 8)

  • Top-Break Auto Ejecting .32 S&W or .38 S&W cal., 5-shot (.38 cal.) or 6-shot cylinder, hard rubber grip panels with floral design, 3 1⁄4 in. barrel, modified American Double Action mechanism and frame, nickel finish, First Variation marked on top of barrel with company name and address only and two guide rods for ejector (1885-1886), Second Variation patent date 10-4-87 marked on top of barrel along with company name and address, extractor does not have extra guide rods (1887-1889). Mfg. 1885-1889.
  • Top-Break Automatic Ejecting Model 1 1⁄2 .32 S&W or .38 S&W cal., different double-action mechanism, trigger, trigger guard and hammer, 5-shot (.38 S&W cal.) or 6-shot (.32 S&W cal.), new frame, nickel or blue finish, hard rubber grips with target logo, 3 1⁄4 in. barrel, marked with two patent date 10-04-87 and 12-25-88 (only revolver to use this date), rare. Mfg. 1889-1890
I have a similar one that Is a 5 shot.
The maker on mine is Iver Johnson.
In my opinion, it should stay in the box.
Mine is hammerless and is not usable, as far as I am concerned.
Does the cylinder come out when open?It would rotate counter clock
wise if it is Iver Johnson.
I cam send photo if you want! TKH
