I done did a little digging at some earthworks south of Atlanta this weekend with my buddy Michael T. I found a neat chess piece carved from a Williams cleaner. They used the pin as the base and the bullet is carved to look like a castle. It is pressed onto the pin and the pin is smashed down like a rivet to hold it all together. Now, like most of you, I have dug several carved bullets, but, for some reason this one is wicked cool to me, I thought that i would share it with all yall.

Hiker, Great find on the chess game piece (carved Cleaner bullet) I used to hunt parts of Atlanta years ago back in the 80's, but I'm afraid I'd be a chalk outline on the pavement today. It's a shame too. Sickening. There is still a lot of History left.
