    Hunted "Little Red School House" Circa 1891,,,

    It wasn't as productive as I was hoping but the site did turn out a couple nice little finds. $3.39 clad, the brass from a shotgun shell, what I think is a wick from an oil lamp (confirm?) my first flat sided nickle (1961) and a cool little pocket knife.

    Anyone have any idea if the knife is restorable? If so, how?

    Looks like an old Barlow style, very cool find. I think the only way to restore it is electralysis. Good luck Romeo!

    The thing I thought was an oil lamp wick is actually a sleigh bell...
