    Stupid question on fusing, what would they do, just attach coin while ax was still hot and copper would thus melt too it? Great job too...I would assume it was a way to identify who the users ax was....

    You wouldn't think a copper coin would look like that after being in the water for so long. Interesting find.

    But what are the odds of that? Ax failing /resting in the water or coin resting stuck to the ax? Or where you searched it was once dry...

    The axe and copper together is a very cool find! Nice cannonball and sling buckle too. I'm sure you know the history as far as what activity occurred in the area you are diving. I was wondering why you feel that is a Rev War find and not War of 1812?

    When a boat load of stuff goes into the water, lots of things sit next to each other.

    It's a cool display piece, leave it as is!

    Yes I am going to leave it just as it is. It has been treated with a thick coat of conservaters wax so it should last for another 200 years.

    I know what you mean about the 'gold' thought. I've had a few copper items from the Thames mud & thought gold. What is amazing is watching it instantly discolour in the air as you hold it.
