Looking for any and all information on my Granny's .32 Long. Serial # on butt and back of cylinder is 84???. Number in yoke is 34???. Left side of the bbl is marked 32 Long Ctg. Top is marked Smith&Wesson, Springfield, Mass, USA. PAT'D March 27, 1894, August 4, 1896, December 22, 1898, October 8, 1901, December 17, 1901, February 6 1908. It is in a holster marked F. A. Meanea, Cheyenne, Wyo. As near as I can find, this company went out of business in 1928. Any help will be greatly appreciated. 20200319_083610.jpg

Granny had good taste in guns.

It looks like a Smith & Wesson Regulation Police revolver, and a very nice piece of jockstrap holster leather in which to carry the revolver.

Is the holster made by HH Heiser?

Nice pistol. That holster may be quite valuable (compared to other holsters). Meanea was a very high quality holster maker, and with that managed a pretty low profile in the market. Get some good quality leather conditioner, and like a ball glove gently work it into the old leather to bring it back to life.
You should enjoy this combo for decades to come.

There are people who collect Menea leather, several years ago I bought a holster of theirs at a flea market for three dollars, I sold it on e-bay for $250.00, and then a guy that was familiar with their leather goods said it was probably worth $500.00. I really don't know but it's something you might want to look into.
