Default Top break hammers?

Found these 2 hammers in a box of parts that belonged to my father. A buddy of mine said he believes they are from a pre 1940's top break revolver, not a S&W. Anybody have any idea what these fit? They may not look like it in the picture but they are identical.

It's been a long time, but those hammers, the firing pins, remind me of the hammer on a black powder Colt repro I built from a kit about 40 years ago.

I would say H&R too, not only top break but solid frame models too.

I Googled H&R revolver hammers and an ad popped up on Ebay for what appears to be the identical hammer. Says it's for an H&R Top Break 6 Shot .32 S&W. Thanks guy's for your input. Now the question is, does anybody out there have a use for these things?
