This is unbelievable this might be my most precious relic yet. I didn’t have much time I went on my lunch break because I saw this stream that runs through my town and normally it’s got a lot of water in it but it hasn’t rained in a while and I saw some rocks so I went for it. I saw lotta broken glass, blue white shards and a lot of iron and then I pulled up this NOT A DING ON IT!!! How can one man be so lucky? The Lord is good

Incredible ride you've been on over the last few months truth....the emotional highs and lows have been extreme....even for us observers !! So happy to share a joyful moment with ya !! Congrats on the impressive banner find !! Keep um comin brother !!
I appreciate that Blak Life is a bunch of high and Low’s But take a chance on your end stinks especially when you’re behind I guess that’s why I was a degenerate gambler 16 years ago this is the only hobby that even comes close to the high hitting it big when you were behind.

Congratulations on the banner Truth. Keep on truckin’.

What’s the plan for preservation?
Do you know a lot about the preservation of brass should I leave the patina? Should I clean her up and see if there’s anything on the back I’m all ears I would just have to trust the process and is that the chance I want to take. Brass cleans up nicely what do you think?

Clean the patina? Don’t you dare! LOL

I was asking more of a question of whether you need to do anything to prevent any damage from having it’s environment changed but it was poorly written. TBH, I didn’t realize this was brass 🤷🏻‍♂️
