Rusty Treasure

Post by rogawilco on Sun 16 Mar 2014, 11:58 am

Hi,
Here what a buddy found last year. Not bad for a beginner. He likes the matchbox more than the gold and found that just walking along. Was stickin out of the ground a bit, so this time instead of just brushing it aside with the boot he decided to pick it up, and wala !!... still has two or three matches in it he reckons, but doesn't want to open it. Are these a common find we ask ourselves.
1880's. ??

It's a good find. I've never seen one myself but I always pick up old tobacco tins and give them a shake.

Or can you get a clearer close up?
