    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.

    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.

    Since I have moved to a new town, after 12 years of live in my old town. I am going to probably move my sundial to my new town, that has the nicest historic district I have ever seen, to the town museum and library. I talked with the curator for a couple hours about the town's history, and what I found out about my house's history. I gave her the long lost lot map of the town, which I discovered after months of searching. She told me that it would be great to have my sundial on loan at the library or museum, along with a blacksmith tool tag with the name of my town's blacksmith in the 1870's (who was very interested in history, and made many frames in the museum back in the late 1800's). I will keep you guys posted!
