    These are items I have found on and in the ground over the years. The first pic shows spikes and hand-wrought nails, although the nail on the top right is machine made. The bottom spike came from the Colorado-Midland RR railbed, from Colorado Springs to Leadville, in Ute Pass.
    The second shows the remnants, found in an old burn pile, from an abandoned coal mining town site south of Canon City, Co. It looks like someone burned a couple of pair of cover-alls.
    The last two pics are an old bookfold tackle box made by UMC of Minneapolis. It is missing a little plastic tray and this is where I keep all the items in the first two pics.

      Thanks for all the loves people.
      I think the fun is in the hunt and not always the find.

      I had a bunch of old RR spikes and decided to post them on eBay to make room for more. They got bids right away.
