    BANNER!!!
    Roland, thank you for the kudos and the Banner Vote. Yes, these Sambo Cap Guns are very rare, and the originals are selling for around $250.00, which is alot of cha-ching for a tiny toy gun. Remember TheCannonballGuy is the one who turned it into a swan from an ugly duckling. Breezie

    Yeah, when I said "beautifully restored", that was directed toward TCG. I certainly hope he takes the time to fill everyone's request for the specifics on how the electrolysis was accomplished....I know I am interested. A simple hand drawn schematic and some procedural details would be wonderful! Please, please, please?

    Well, then let's see some banner votes!! Between the discovery/recognition and outstanding restoration, not to mention the rarity........this item deserves a BANNER VOTE!

    That is cool as all get out, Breezie! Crazy to see what was under that blob of rust, huh?

    Not withstanding how cool and unique the cap pistol is, the work to restore it is even more amazing. It's now a beautiful piece, not just a rusty find.
    You have a keeper, to be sure.

    Roland, Neil in West Jersey, Teleman and others : Thank you for the Banner votes. Yes, Sambo would look sweet among the coins & buttons on the banner, and would fulfill Gypsy Heart's(Queen of Rust) thoughts of having some 'rusty iron' on the Banner. Sambo is certainly rare and different, plus has the Black American flare. Grouping this with my Slave Trade Bracelet, it seems unusal pieces follow me home!

    Nana, Mcogan, Sentinel, TommNJ, and DMN thank you for the kudos I appreciate you taking your time to post.

    NJ, TheCannonballGuy can tell you exactly what he used, but I think it was water & Arm/Hammer Washing Powder.

    I've posted a pic I made from Charles W. Best book, Cast Iron Toy Pistols. Sambo is on page 124

    Again, thank you for your support Breezie
