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

Thanks pa-dirt Like I said I dug the hole in the creek it was muddy waters and I reached my hand in the hole and it was like I pulled out Excalibar And it was absolutely clean I didn’t have to ride
Rub dirt off it it was a beautiful site but I’m telling you my back is still hurting I’m not used to not being able or not wanting to kneel both knees down it the cold water. I guess I’m just not used to it I’m just getting old like a old cajun donkey

That's a fantastic find! I'd love to see more pictures when you do some preservation. If you get it safely open, let us know what you find. Inquiring minds want to know! Best wishes to you after some difficult times.
I got to be honest I’ve had it soaking in clean water every day I change the water a pour it out and nothing really Black ever came out of it. I tried to remove the top but I don’t wanna break it and it’s on there pretty pretty tight as far as preserve in it I’m scared to clean it because every time I’ve cleaned something most of the time I regretted it here’s what it looks like now.
Just made your back feel better,huh?:laughing7:
Bro it hurts I’m taking for back pain medicine and it still ain’t working

I been there old friend,had a bad back for the last 30 years or so and just got over a spell with it. I do wish you all the best with that,my heart goes out to you.If you haven,t ever tried one look up a good chiropractor,they can do good stuff for backs,and no pain meds,cheaper than a MD. It,s worth a try and worked for me.

Yeah I don’t take any sort of pain medicine but I don’t know if a chiropractor was real as far as long-term

Beyond incredible find! I would think a coin would make a much higher pitch sound than a lead ball inside?

Need some advice on this powder flask. I got good news the good news is I got it open and what was in there was the mechanism that opened it up which was so hard to get open but I have the peace the bad thing was was I broke the shell holder in the top on hopefully I can get that soldered is that possible? Third it’s got a whole lot of black stuff in there what should I clean it with?

It was a little lever that went on the flask that was in there while I was put a little too much muscle on getting it open the brass sides of the tub broke I have to have it re-soldered I don’t know who does that
