I researched three books on gun values but did not find that manufacturer listed. Sorry I can't help.

After reading the above website it sounds like it should be a well made replica. If made with all the hand work they claim it may be worth a little or a lot but you already knew that.

I found out it is a replica and you can get them for about 160 so nothing special but it is a smooth shooter though

A lot of cap and ball replicas are made in Italy. Some better than others. If you intend to shoot it make darn sure you eighther use the felt pads between powder and ball or grease the loaded cylinders to keep it from chamber firing. That's when a spark from the fired chamber arcs over and ignites another chamber. Trust me, it's not pretty when that happens. Imagine holding on to a handgrenade when it goes off and you'll get the picture. Do it safely and they are a lot of fun to shoot and surprisingly accurate too.
