    Found while River Diving

    Found the following item while doing a river dive this afternoon, saw a glint on the bottom and pulled it out of the slit. I thought for a minute that it was a part to a rifle and that I would find the rest of it there, however there wasn't anything else in the area .

    Facts I do Know:

    Item is made of Brass

    Overall length is 5 inches

    Has a rolling part at the end that is pinned

    Brass part is pinned to another brass/metal flat shank?

    Item has a connecting pin at the other end of the flat shank, possibly to secure it.

    Pictures provided for your viewing;


    Anyone have any suggestion as to what it is?

    By golly .. whatever it is, I think it's the other half to Ohio Jerry's find! Seriously .. look at the archetecture of the handle part .. not exact, but close!

    Re: Found while River Diving

    Don,there sure is a lot of similarity to that "whatizit" i posted last week, the resemblance to "odie" cracks me up. I can't argue with that one .I have researched antique window and door latches til i'm blue in the face and nothing matches up. Thought my piece might also be old gun hardware but still nothing has turned up. Good luck id'ing your piece,very interesting.

    Yes, I can see where you're coming from; do you know the family?
