    Cleaning relics with vinegar, before and after pics

    These are pictures of a Civil War Springfield musket rear sight. It was a two position sight that had a slide for elevation. The pictures are as it was found and after four days of soaking in white vinegar and scrubbing with a toothbrush.

    As I am finding , In life we begin having the Blissful happiness & the Wonder & innocence of a Child, then fall Quickly, then spend the rest of our lives trying to reach that point where we began ,through Pleasure , Fame, & Materials but Only 'Through true faith in Jesus , can we find Prefect Happiness or true Meaning in our Short lives on this Beautiful Earth filled with both the Light of Pure goodness & The Darkness of Pure Evil.
