Can anyone tell me roughly how old, pre-1899? And value? I've searched via Google and found a little, but not much.

Left side: Webley R.I.C No.1 476CF
Top: London & Birmingham - P. Webley & Son


Thanks

.You might try looking up the proof marks.

"P. Webley and son" is 1897 or earlier.

Yours is a "new model, first pattern," which would date between 1881-1897.

Looks like it might be $700 to $900, unless it was used by or in a noted individual or incident.

the 476 was a transitional cartridge between the 450 adams and the 455 webley. it was not actually a .476 cartridge, being nearly identical to the later 455, and ammo is interchangeable in most guns, with black powder being norm for all 476 guns, and 455 guns made prior to 1895.

the webley 455 Mk 1 was adopted in 1887, so, presumably, your gun was made prior to that year
