My town actually used to have a river ford so I was down on the river bank investigating. Not as trashy as I thought it would be. Decent signals.

Found a nice old padlock, branded with CHIEF. No other markings except a “1” on the shackle. Shackle actually opens and closes still. Amazing condition for being buried in mud by the river.

Found some silver on the river edge too. Appears to be a back of a watch, possibly vintage. Masters Sutton Sterling USA.

Masters Sutton Sterling. Hmmm.

Have you heard of it? Can’t find much on the company. Have seen a few watches online, most old but that’s about it.

And I had a typo. It’s “Master” without the “s”
