    The Best Find Iíve Had In Months

    Iíll beep for a few hours every other weekend, not really pounding dirt the way I used to, but thatís ok, life is good.
    But on my way home from work, I spied a sidewalk tear out, only 50 feet or so, but itís an old street..... I started to drool.
    15 cents in clad, roadside trash and scraps..... bummer.
    But then.....this pops out.

    A little copper box, ornate all around, and with 99% intact majolica glass on the top.
    A pill box? Art Deco?..... super old, and super sweet....gotta be the coolest thing Iíve found all year.

    Also, itís heavy. Itís sealed shut, and Iím kinda scared to pry it open without Fíing it up.
    But the curiosity is killing me.....are there Barbers in there?....or just dirt.
    Stay tuned.

    Thanks for looking!
    I invite you to visit my profile, look what I've found!

    I HOPE THE GUY WHO INVENTED SPELLCHECK BURNS IN HELLO

    Snuff Box? Regardless, you took advantage of a great opportunity and were rewarded for the effort.
    Nicely done!

    What a great looking little box! I hope it's full of gold coins, but even if it's empty it's a really cool find.

    Careful opening it up, I have done similar to a few things and wrecked the relic for a little pile of old dirt.

    If it is used as intended, it might have pills in it. An image search for ďsquare micro mosaic pill boxĒ showed a lot of pretty boxes looking similar.

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.
