Hello Everybody,

Hi my name is Tony. I love looking for the old treasures, mainly with metal detector but I'm up for any treasure, antique, or anything old. There is nothing like un burying history. I have found some pretty interesting things. One I would like to post because I found it yesterday. I believe it to be trench art, but in the area were I found this I mainly find colonial era stuff. The best I can tell it is a small lead pipe. There is a pin hole in the stem. I was able to stick a broom bristle through the whole. If anybody has any info in helping me out I would greatly appreciate it. In one of the pictures you can see were this person cut the corners on the bottom to try and seal it up.

Hi there Salvor6. I took another picture to give it a size reference. Also in the picture we're the stem meets the bowl I tied to get my tool mark in it uncovering that white corrosion that gets on the lead from earlier times. I could have sent a better intro to the piece with better definition.
