Don't bother posting the results because I'm pretty sure we would be skeptical of it.

Jeff, I can give you 2 examples as to how modern iron can be so corroded. Iron buried where there is coal or coal ashes is very corrosive. I have dug up iron that has been buried for only 90 years in coal and they were all rust and practically no metal. Iron that sits in a damp area gets very rusty in a short time. Very rusty metal does not mean it is centuries old. Am I the only one that thinks this discussion is very entertaining? I would hate to see it disappear.

Im sorry if I offended any TN members. I reread my post and it didnt sound right. I just meant that if you are following this thread, please voice your opinion. Because ignoring this thread will not help. Thanks. TN members are the best.

Its entertaining and it seems to just get better and better but its just not right to allow this nonsense to continue. But Im willing to play along if you think it will help? The artifacts kinda resemble petrified Roman poop.

It started out as a joke but after a little research, the joke is on me. Here is a study on petrified Roman poop. Its also magnetic from all the iron in spaghetti sauce. ANCIENT, PETRIFIED POOP VERY REVEALING: History and Crime Liaison | Foodsite Magazine

ELECTROLYSIS. Please read this thread- http://www.treasurenet.com/forums/to...fter-pics.html
Jeff- no one is trying to belittle you, although a few may be a little harsh in their replies. I don't think "this sight is full of skeptics and *******s" (as you put it) although there may be a few, as with any public forum. When you let them get to you, they win. You came here asking for help, not the other way around. Opinions and educated guesses have been given. Your own opinion has also been received. There are many people on this site who have been digging up rusty iron relics for decades, they base their opinions upon personal experience. It's not just something they pull out of thin air. The only way to truly know what these pieces of rust are is to clean them using electrolysis, period. Whether Roman or 1980 (yes 1980), it needs to be done. Ask those you are bringing it to tommorrow, they will tell you the same thing. Both soil and environmental conditions affect iron in different ways. The same object can look adversly different depending on where/how it was found.

He believes his drift like item is valuable and nothing anybody says will ever change his mind.

if it is a blacksmiths drift very unique and possibly one of a kind, it is very valuable to people who collect those sort of things i say, and probally worth more then $2.00 to that collector or collectors..............
