    It shows three men taking aim at targets circa 1904-1918. Click image for larger version

    Once you get a feel for how they sound you can eliminate most.
    But some when on end sound to good to pass up. Click image for larger version

ID:	174909 This was the find of the day.
    And one of the many who stopped and talked yesterday almost took offense,
    when I said that I would not be giving this to the museum. Click image for larger version

ID:	174916 The initial signal was for silver,
      but that may have been due to a piece of brass higher up in the hole.
      The only markings on this is X V on the inside of both half's. Click image for larger version

ID:	174920 And I want to thank Chris aka RelicMedic for an ID and history on this. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pacifi..._Soccer_League

      It certainly doesn't look like silver. Click image for larger version

        Finders keepers! I would not give it to a museum either. Let them find their own stuff.
        Really cool finds Bruce thanks for sharing

                          Had one of those bought new and could literally watch the bb's 'fall out".
