    A few keepers...

    Truth and I hit a permission I obtained the other day of an early1900 home. We didn’t find as much silver as we hoped for, but Truth did pickupa small silver ring. I on the other hand only picked up a few keepers, whichinclude an old pocket watch, two (2) lipstick holders, an unknown in the top left corner of the photo as pictured, an aluminum religious pendant, one (1) Wheatie(appears to be a 1919), a small square plate with M&M engraved on it and what’sleft of the cylinder and another piece from a .32 caliber revolver. I alsopicked up about $3.70 in clad quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies. The picksbelow are from two (2) separate angles, thanks for looking, HH, take care and mayGod Bless!!!

    Not sure on the make Davey, but it's a .32 caliber cylinder, wish I could've found more of it and I'd love to know the story behind it... "D"

    Davey,

    It's possible its a pocket gun based on the cylinder size and the other small piece I found with it, definitely a small framed pistol, the only difference from yours is it's a 6 shot and a .32 caliber...
