    Superb 18th century axe! When you say a "good amount" of silver, you aren't kidding!

    Relic & Nugget hunting, but I do it all
    Nice finds! I like the ax head and it doesn't appear to be used a lot.

    I would rather see an authentic broken scraper posted than a G-10 Artifake!

    Awesome ! If it was me I would surely have to make a period correct handle for that axe. Maybe out of some extra fancy Curly Maple or Sugar Maple with nice figure to the grain. It deserves only the best.

    Thanks Rege-PA. That's probably the only one of my axes that I'm going to restore.
