    Thanks, I'm sure that many people will see it too, considering the fact that the glass display case, embedded into the wall, is right next to the line in which people form to speak with the representative at the town hall. That means that people will have something to look at while waiting in line. It is also the place where you go to get your dog licence, and with some early dog licences from my town on display, including the oldest known for my town, it seems kind of cool. I also sent the curator a photocopy of my article, which he wants to put on display with my sundial, the article pretty much tells the story of the find and how it was found. He also contacted the local newspaper and asked if they wanted to interview me, which they were interested in doing and hope to find a time. In awhile my artifacts will be moved from the town hall to the museum.

    I agree with you, for me it seem that what's the point of having a very cool artifact that you discovered if it is not being enjoyed by anyone and just sitting in a dusty drawer or box. In this case it will be viewed daily by many people, along with the many other of my artifacts.

    Here's the card from it in the museum, I blocked out the town for privacy reasons.

    Go F2 and congrats on the find.
    I too have replaced the freeby pinpointer with a Xpointer but will keep the freeby so the grandkids can follow or search for stuff in the sand.
