    They made - or Butler made for them - a bunch of these little things in the 1960s, maybe into the 1970s. Sorry, I can't guess a dollar value, look on the auction side.

    It appears to be a Colt "Lord" Derringer. Made in the 1960's. Out of Zinc die casting,(potmetal). By Butler Industries, who was a Colt subcontractor.

    Although fireable, they are more novelties than practical firearms.

    Only way, IMHO, it would have any value. If it was New in Box with all accessories and paperwork. My WAG, if you can get $50 out of it. Take the money and run.

    THANKS GUYS
    From what info she gave me. Her late husband bought it in the 60's an was shot few times. probably the super x box of shorts is worth more than the pistol [:D]

    Technically, it's a "Colt No 4 derringer". I don't think it's a Lord, as the Lord & Lady have a birds head grip.

    If you were able to take smaller photo that are in focus, $75-100 may be possible.

    I bought a set of those Lord & Lady Derringers years ago. My wife saw them at an auction and thought they were cute, so I got them for her. I think I paid $150 - $200 with the satin lined case.

    That is a Colt "Lord" derringer (made by Butler) and it does have a birdshead grip as clearly shown in the picture. $50 - $75 is a fair price.

    Should be really happy! Lucked out, and found the proverbial dude, that just fell off the Turnip wagon.
