The only other information is that it was found along the Smoky River Basin
(in Kansas) and was probably found in the 1980?s.? They had received it as a
donation too their Historical Society and had not yet cataloged and
photographed the case it was in.
Let's be on the lookout and if you see or are offered something that fits
this description please contact them.? I know that without a picture or
specific type it will be hard to identify.
If I receive any additional information I will pass it along.
