    Some kind of lead seal?

    Found close to old railroad tracks, this item is about 3/4 inch in diameter and is lead. Any ideas what it is and what the markings stand for?

    Thanks. Edit: for some reason I can't upload any pics with this new site. sorry. I give up.

    Hey T, sorry you can't post pics; I truly understand your frustration with this new software cause it giving me a fit too. Here is a link with a Railroad lead seal I found. Does it look like mine? Breezie (I'd put my usual smiley face, but I can't find it in the icons) Here's the link:http://www.treasurenet.com/forums/to...xcar-seal.html

    Thanks Breezie. YES, that is just like the one I found. Mine says A 280 5 on one side and I.& G.N. on the other side. Ideas?

    Yes, the I & G N stands for the International – Great Northern Railroad. Here is a website for you:
    International

    Sorry it took me so long to respond, but I can't hardly stand this new software on TNet, and every time I visit, I think it's going to be better, but I'm still not use to it.

    Neat find on your railroad box car seal. I wish you could post a pic of it. Breezie

    IGN was the RR that first came to Calvert, from Galveston. In Colleg station there is a Road called IGN that was once the RR bed. I have a few of those i found in the store digs
    Leave no stone unturned.
