Need info on a Rohm Model 63 S&W32 long

I know nothing about this gun except what was copied for me from the gun. Lady in my SS class wants to sell it. Ammo is Hi$ I think if it is 32 S&W Long. Is it a good gun, cheap etc, I'm clueless? She said it belonged to her 1st husband. It does have a nice holster and belt I'm told, has it on her wall. Said it is a 32, I looked at some ammo, seemed about 80 cents a round. Thanks.

The Rohm guns were made of a zinc alloy that wasn't very durable. They were quite cheap and not very well made.

I'd consider one a curiosity but not a very functional firearm.
