The Navy revolver was not .44 caliber (it was.36 caliber), and was not made in 1843. Without seeing the gun, will tell you it is likely you have a reproduction of the Colt revolver made in Italy by Pietta. You will need a hands on appraisal by an experienced dealer or collector. Modern day reproductions are in the $200 range, depending on condition. PS- Ormsby invented the machine that performed roll engraving. While he was an engraver, his actual engraving was for printing plates for bank notes. Not guns. We have been asked about a revolver with THAT serial number at least 5 times, reinforcing the belief that it is a reproduction.
a good $50 and a couple gs
