I just inherited this old boy, It has a lot of dark marks showing through the plating. I tried to look it up as to it's age but found nothing. Mine says, left side of barrow "38 S&W OTG", then a small deign. I don't know what OTG stands for, and the references I see about this early gun say nothing about "OTG" on the side.
and should I consider restoring it? or not worth it?

.38 S&W CTG means it was made to fire .38 S&W cartridges (not .38 special). Shipped 1898-1907. Restoring the nickle plating alone would cost much more than it's worth. If I inherited it I'd just keep it as a keepsake.
