Probably somewhere between $0.01 and $1 Billion.

Kind of hard to say, though, without an adequate description of condition or photographs.

It is a French Model 1873 revolver, a Lefaucheux-Chaineux design and not a bad revolver for its day. It was used by the French army and navy and also by the Greek army and navy. The caliber is 11mm. Like other revolvers of the period, removal of the large screw above the left grip allows the sideplate (left) to come off for inspection/repair of the lockwork. The ammunition was made only in France and I know of no source, though it might be made from something else.

They are primarily of interest to military revolver collectors and collectors of French arms. Value is around $100-200 depending on condition.

(The "Mrc" is actually "Mre", abbreviation for "Manufacture", or factory.)
