Type: Antique squirt gun, 1886 or 1896?
This antique squirt gun, 'USA LIQUID PISTOL' is cast iron construction with a nickle plate. The name and patent date are cast into it's sides,  June 30, 1886, or possibly 1896, the third digit is an  '8', but could be a  '9' with a casting flaw?  I can not imagine anyone making a squirt gun in 1886, the industrial revolution was just getting started.
   It is not functional as it's water bladder turned hard and was punctured by the trigger long ago.  Most of the tube is intact but it is hard and crispy.
 That old rubber just didn't last more than about 50 years?  This was in my father's collection when I was a boy, (I'm now 53 yrs old) and it didn't work then either!

   It is 4 3/4 inches long.  The nickle finish is very good to excellent, about 75-80 % remaining.  If you need
a functional minty one, this isn't the one to bid on.

  If the shipping is less than the quoted amount, the balance will be included with the item.
