    Breaking in my new BDU’s

    The other day, I ripped the crotch out of my favorite diggin’ pants. My last pair of Navy issued woodland camo from 1996. So, I went on to “the eBay” and bought some new ones............. anyway, I was so damn excited, I went out for the rare late afternoon hunt. I didn’t find s**t for coins, but my last hole was a bucket lister for me, a size 9 sterling thimble, 50 feet from an old baseball field, weird😳

    Awesome find. Even though I only have 3 to my name, I like finding those thimbles. They are neat little relics.

    I don't fit into my BDU's anymore.

    Not sure yet, I’m letting it dry before I take the Dremel tool to it (;

    on the top, inside it’s marked sterling with a design, I don’t see a makers mark unless the design is it.

    That is one neat thimble. You had better take some care with your britches.What years did you serve in the military? I was drafted in 1951 foe Korean war.
