Hello Everyone,
                    Although I havnt had much chance to go a beepin! due to other things keep poppin up!. I did manage to go poking around to see what I could find treasure wise,thru my other various outlets.I bought a box of junk for a buck at an estate sale.
                    Well you have heard of getting more bang for your buck! well low and behold this is what was in the bottom of the box. a .32 cal Iver Johnson topbreak revolver. in 2000 this gun could be purchased for about 75.00 from an antique arms dealer. now the price for this particular antique ranges from 275.00- 350.00. Id say not bad on my part lol. Now if I can just find one in the same shape as this one, when I do get a chance to go a beepin.
         As Always Best Wishes.....Rob

That may be hard to say.

It was made from 1895 til 1950.

If you check tha serial number,

you may be able to get tha age

of the item through the factory

records.

Happy Huntin,

Tabdog

Hi Farmdigger,
                   This is an early one, and a true antique, to my amasement it was well taken care of. it retains over 95 percent of its orgional plating. I have always had great luck in finding old firearms, and militaria. Now if I can just find a few certain pieces that I am looking for, I will be happy.
              Best Wishes....Rob

Now you can't tell me that whoever was selling that had NO idea what was in the bottom of that box...makes ya stop and wonder..."Was this weapon used in a crime?"...I hope not...All handguns must be registered here in NY to be legal, and each should carry the history of past ownwers...Wonder what the history is on that peice?

HH,
