This is a 1/2 scale Remington Vest Pocket derringer by Larry H. Smith of Florida.  2 1/8" long overall with a 1 11/16" barrel of .107 caliber.  This piece fires the 2mm pinfire cartridges.  The steel frame is modestly hand engraved on both sides in a scroll vine and leaf pattern.  The top of the barrel is marked "-LHS-"  The serial number, 24, stamped into the bottom of the barrel just ahead of the trigger.  The piece was originally gold washed, but most of the gold wash is gone, showing only traces in the protected areas.  Nicely aged two piece bone grips with nickel silver escutcheons, a nice patina and grain, and the screw entering from the left side.  Complete with the original Larry Smith walnut hinged top casing with push button latch.  The interior English fit and lined in a purple felt.  The bottom of the case marked "-L.H.-, SMITH, VP - 24, E" in four lines.  Accessories include a brass handled steel cleaning rod, the steel finished in the white, and 13 2mm pinfire blank cartridges.There is some minor rust etching, mostly around the front sight, and on the bottom and back of the gripstrap.  The cartridge block in the interior of the case has a very obvious crack, and there are some scratches and bruises on the case lid.  Priced accordingly.  This would be a fairly easy piece to restore if you have the skills.
