It's good that your Iver Johnson was blued - most of them were nickel finished - blue is a bit more rare. The 1900 was produced in a couple of variations, and most important is the condition - if it is in 85% condition, then it is probably worth $125 - $150 (that's retail, and I have seem them sell for considerably less); perhaps more if it has an unusual feature (barrel length, grips, etc.) It would help if you could post some photos. I'll let others comment on the value of your S&W - the Safety Hammerless (aka "lemon squeezer") has considerably more value than the Iver Johnson - but again, condition is most important.

Here is a .38 S&W Hammerless, 1 of 2, SENT to Iver Johnson on August 26, 1914. It is the only Lanyard Loop Hammerless I have seen, and this gun is 99.9%…
