The gun is probably Belgian (look for a proof mark of an oval with ELG on or around the breechblock) and is a modified Flobert action in that it does have a breech block and the breech block is locked into the receiver, a stronger arrangement than some other guns of the general type.

There is a mild collector interest but the gun has basically a novelty value (IMHO maybe $100-150). It should be safe to fire and .32 rimfire is, or soon will be, available in limited quantities. But I would not recommend trying to alter it to center fire or to a more powerful cartridge.
