Ralph Farnsworth, of New Haven, Vermont, submitted Item No. 1190 quite so time ago.
Chris Heilman, of Kittanning, Pennsylvania, said Item No. 1191 was found in the woods. It is not rusted even though it has been in the ground for 70-plus years. It is heavy, feels like lead, but it is not soft. It is nonmagnetic and is not brass or copper. It looks to have been stamped and has no holes in it.
