    Cleaning this little pistol has been a very slow process. It is close to being finished, so I will post some updated photos tomorrow.
    As with many other relics found at this site, it appears as though this pistol has suffered extreme heat - fire damage.
    It is pretty rough, and no markings are visible.

    Not overly thrilled with the way this turned out, but it is what it is, and I am happy to have it.
