    an old pal of mine vs my old pal

    1. He's an old pal of mine.
    2. He's my old pal.

    Are the sentences above correct? If 'yes' do they mean the same?

    Re: an old pal of mine vs my old pal

    Is there any difference in use between 1 and 2? Are these expressions used interchangeably?

    #2 could mean he's my only old pal.
