Whitney Arms Co. Whitneyville, Connecticut. By the 1870's this once famous firm was reduced to making "Suicide Specials ". Sold under a number of different names such Eagle, Defender and Monitor. Yours is a typical firearm as shown in Fayerman's under the Title Sucide Specials . Value is very low and I for one ( unless it is a Heirloom ) can see no justication for the expense of restoration. They sold for less than 2 dollars when brand new. Sorry about that However that is just MHO and like belly buttons everyone has an opinion
