Hey guys!! Glad I found you all.
After my Dad died I told mother that once we found the hidden guns, there was one I wanted. She and I finally found it!!
Here is the info I got from the pistol.
Iver Johnson Arms and Cycle Works
Fitchburg Mass USA
Patd Apr 6.86
Dec 26 (28?) 93
Number on bottom of handle
Etched in frame 2844204(hand etched, badly)
38 Cal,, 5 shot revoler
So, after reading this site, I have decided that putting it a case on the wall is the best bet. For your information my grand father had carried the gun while he was a postal clerk on the AT&T between Fort Worth and I think Denver. This of course a long time ago.
I don't intend to even attemp to fire the gun and may well follow some advice I saw on here, clean it, replace the worn out grips and re blue it and hang on the wall. OH< I also got a US stamped shoulder holster with the gun.
Any more info any one would care to share, I would appreicate it.
Thanks again, looking forward to finding more infor and learning more from here on a couple other guns I have.
