When I’m unsure I always search completed auctions on Gunbroker then reduce a few dollars so as not to fool with shipping and their fees.
Are you thinking of selling or simply appraising?

I'm not sure what "a ore 27" is, but I'll pass on that.

Both of these are highly collectable, and in high demand. Much of the value depends on exactly what the condition is, and the condition of the grips, and whether there are any original accessories (box, sight tool, etc). Factory letters also make a difference.

Without an in-person inspection, or good photos, it's impossible to give a useful value, even ballpark. "Beautiful" means different things to different people, and the interest in these guns is high enough that small details can make a big difference. If you're near Picayune, I'd like to look at them, and maybe help with a value.

Best guess is somewhere between $500 and $1500, but even that's not written in stone.

I know what they are worth
While I was joking, I have to ask. If you know what they're worth why are you asking what they are worth??

Like others have said, it's all in the details. Sight unseen $500.00 is average I'd guess.
The 27/28 are fine revolvers. A 27 was my 1st centre fire Revolver.

Take some good pics and post it in the handgun/ pistol section.
Most of us will not buy a gun any gun sight unseen unless it is from a trusted friend. We know what your gun is but prices can range all over the place but usually more for one in over 90% condition. A collector that is looking for one will pay more.
I like to know the history of antique guns if available. Who owned it? a relative, friend,family or pawn shop.
