    These found they're way to me over the past few years. I'm thinking about making a nice presentation shadow box out them and maybe a few arrowheads and some indian beadwork I have, probably hand it down to my son. I have this stuff here and there and I thought it would be better to see it all together. Neither firearm is fireable, the rifle has a broken frame where it mounts to the stock. The pistol takes black powder cartridges so you'd really want to know your stuff or lose a hand messing with it. I put it in this category because I wasn't sure where it went.

    The knife is an 1880's Sheffield EBROW with a cross Don't even remember where I got it, garage sale I think.

    The rifle is a Ted Williams model 100 30 30win. Think I paid $20 for it.

    The pistol is an Iver Johnson Arms and Cycle Works .38 revolver it takes black powder cartridges. It was my wifes grandmothers, theres even a story of her running around looking for an ex with it....LOL.

      The Iver Johnson revolver does not use Black Powder shells, I have one my self that is as old or older. The 30-30 with the broken tang can be fixed. I have fixed many of then, probley over 50 of them over the last 40 years.

      I contacted a few individuals about fixing the rifle and the cost to me isnt worth it. I made a mistake when posting the pistol it is not a .32 it is a .38 5 shot. I'm going to post it and Maybe you can tell me more on it if you would. I can't find any info on the serial# for mfr date. There is an Ivers Johnson pamphlet out there that list them all, but once again buying a book to identify 1 pistol isn't worth it to me.
