  5. Lead mold or just a fishing net weight?

    Lead, when poured into a container shrinks during cooling... causing the divot you see. That was the top of the pour. The hole looks like where someone screwed a screw eye into it to use it for a weight. I had several of these around until I melted them into a bumper for my tractor... Anyone...

  10. Underwater metal detecting:

    Michigan believes that anything lost belongs to them. If it is underwater, it is theirs. If it is on the beach, it is theirs. If it is on public land, it is theirs. If it is on private land, it is the landowner's... everything else belongs to the indians. The official answer I received was...
