This is a shovel I bought at an estate sale, originally just seen it as an old well made shovel. When I started researching it as I do on most of my finds I realized it was stamped T&P. Turns out it was from the Texas and Pacific railway. When I contacted the museum in Marshall Texas they seemed super excited and offered me $100 for it. It now resides in the museum, this last summer I went to the museum and visited it.
