Another Iver Johnson .32 Pistol ?age?
As crazy as this sounds, I remembered that I too have an old pistol that my dad gave me. After pulling ot out tonight, it too is an Iver Johnson. Below are the specs that Bill asked for based on another IJ he researched today.
-*Iver Johnson's Arms & Cycle Works*
-*Fitchburg, Mass. U.S.A.*
-No apparent markings on barrel side.
-Butt strap has Pat.June 16,96(?)Aug.25,9? w/ Pats.Pend. below
-3" barrel, 5 cylinder, almost positive it is .32 cal, single flat leaf hammer spring, small hammer, black owl-face grips.
Age is main question, but am curious about value. It is probably in 60% range.
