      Nice Little Atom Square Butt. These are made of 3 layers of die stamped brass, riveted together, then nickel plated. I believe your example has a blocked barrel and has a vent hole in the bottom of the barrel. The very early examples of Japan 2mm pinfires had the barrels bored through all the way. The later examples had the barrels blocked and vented through the side, top or bottom for safety reasons.
      Here are a few Japan Little Atom examples I have:

      Badgirl4life916, if you are interested in collecting these, you might consider getting the book, The Tiniest Guns by Bob Urso. A great little book on these little Breloque pistols and collecting of miniatures.
