Welcome to the Forum! Well, it doesn't look like a Smith and Wesson, honestly it is more like one of the inexpensive revolvers made around the 1900s. Chances are it fires an S&W cartridge, like .32 or .38 S&W?

Yes. Definitely not a Smith and Wesson. What does it say on the barrel? In the first picture I see Company and assume a company name is on there, but cut off in the picture.

Not really, but it's not much. If it is in shootable condition, and you want to shoot it, it takes .38 S&W cartridges, which is not the same as .38 Special.

Yes, it is a firearm. I would not shoot it unless it was checked out by a competent gunsmith to verify it was safe to fire. As CIsland said, they are not worth a lot of money. If it is a family heirloom there may be some sentimental value, but that's about it.

This. Definitely have a professional gunsmith check it out before firing it!

It is an H&R revolver. It is more of a curio than anything else. it appears to be in 90% condition. In that condition I would say $100-150. In 80% condition I would say $50-75.

Ammo is still available, but in my humble opinion it isn't much good as a defense gun nor would it make a good range gun. In other words, you could shoot it but why would you?
