    Ever Seen A Painted Tic Tac Toe Cob?

    Hey all. Another cob offered to me in Nicaragua. Easy enough to identify, but I don't like the apparent paint on it. If it is paint, it looks very old. Have you seen something like this before?Click image for larger version.

    I'm not convinced that it is paint. Looks like a land find. It is either iron corrosion due to the environment it was found or heavily caked on soil that was never properly cleaned. With the recent scratches in the metal, it looks like an amateur effort to pick away the material. Either a muriatic acid bath or some electrolysis should clean it up.

    Well, maybe if I am ever allowed to travel again I can get it on the cheap.... Thanks for having a look!
