Quite a range..modern builders might make 3, if they feel generous.

He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.

How long is the smallest one? I know there was a really small version made along with a comparably small darter. They almost looked to be freshwater size-maybe 3".

I had two of that size in silver that may still be kicking around. I never did use them. Should have started collecting. Also had two of those little darters-gave them to a collector at the show at Foxboro last winter.
