    Beginner's Luck?

    I'm pretty sure this first find is an early 1930's Packard hood ornament, but can anyone tell me what kind of bullet this is?Click image for larger version.

    I have no idea, but I'm joining in to find out because I have had a few. I guessed they were early 20th C hand-gun

    Most likely fired from a M1911 into the air!

    I'm going with .45 caliber on the bullet also. But I really like that hood ornament.
