Can't get a good view of the hammer knurling but it doesn't look like colt to me from the angle view.

No problem; Remove and discard the bolt. Rotate the cylinder by hand to line up chamber to barrel. Hold in this position and thumb back the hammer and release. Should hear a noise. (Just in case there is someone that........this is a joke, do not try it.)

It would be a deal at about 25 bucks! Then after spending over 200 bucks to fix it, you might have a decent hammer. The knurling may be from tn early 1907. Some had pretty long knurling,

I agree, the 2nd type bordered checkering without the extra line in front.

I've seen a couple of 1st gen hammers repaired this way back in the day; the lower 1/3 of hammer base with notches is sliced off of a new hammer and soldered on an old hammer that's been prepared in this way.
