I have no way to post a picture, but if someone can help I'd be grateful.
I have a tip up revolver. It has a three inch barrel. Overall it is about 7 and 1/2 inches. The bird's head grip is a very dark smooth wood. The finish is in fair shape. It is nickel plated. On the top of the barrel it has "No 32 STANDARD 1875". On the left side it has "C. M. Marle New Haven Ct USA pat July 3 1873". It is a 5 shot cylinder.
Thanks to all for your help, P5 Guy

So, that is Marlin not Marle on the barrel. $175 was the sale price on the link you posted. The one I have is a little nicer, the plating is in better condition.
My thanks to you Tidewater_kid.
Not being able to read the stamp on the barrel right is why I couldn't find it not bad google-fu.
