    Old valves, clasps, coins & a Spife!

    I’ve dug a couple of old gas valves on my last couple of hunts.

    A 1917 Buffalo popped out of a well pounded cellar hole and also a crusty fatty IHP.

    (The IHP rang up as a 15 which surprised me until I figured it must be a fatty.)

    Here’s the handful.

    So we all know what a spork is, well I dug my first spife. It actually cuts pretty well with the serrated edge.
