To set the scene, look here:
After my first day of college earlier this year, I went to one of my dig-sites but found destruction workers there finishing up demolition.
Walking around, I found almost all of an insulator still stuck on its antiquated metal hardware (and it won't come off!) shards to gorgeous plates, bottle shards, etc.-- typical things barring the hardware.
Having been caught trespassing, I walked up to my catcher and immediately began questioning him (a daring move that usually pays off) with normal questions like, "What all was here before?" "What are the plans for the place?" "How long has it so far taken?" &c.
He answers and begins questioning me, myself still holding onto many of the items-- including the insulator-on-a-stick.
What I didn't say was that in my pocket, from where the remains to an early-1900s milk bottle were shattered on the sidewalk above the mess, I found tossed up in the sand this 1903 Indian Head Penny. A common date in poor condition, but part of LIBERTY is still visible in the headband (in person) which is always nice.
Nothing worked to get the insulator off, so I tried shattering it on concrete.
IT BROKE THE CONCRETE. ROFL.
