This is a 1-5/8" long 2mm pinfire pistol made in Germany. Made of solid nickel (often called German silver).
This is not a watch fob because it does not have a ring or hole to attach on a watch chain.
This is an unusual, souvenir 2mm pinfire pistol, with a hand engraved San Francisco city skyline on one side and the Bay Bridge on the opposite side.
The underside of the barrel is stamped: GERMANY in a horseshoe / half moon shape.
This was probably made to celebrate the opening of the San Francisco / Oakland Bay Bridge.
The construction of the Bay Bridge began on July 9, 1933 and was opened for traffic on November 12, 1936. The total length of the Bay Bridge is 23,555 feet (4.46117 miles), and is 190 feet high.
Thanks for looking,
