    18 k gold pocket watch. !

    Have not posted in a while, frankly I have had nothing great to post, until today. When out with Cheffer today for three hours and found this 18 K gold pocket watch. Could not believe it when it came out of the ground. Looked it up itís from around mid 1800. Thanks for your spot Cheffer.

    Oh yeah! What a great find. Banner.


    "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.

    The Bald Eagle photo...he/she posed for me, gave me it's best American look. I felt privileged to get the shot.
