Metal Detecting Post #17

This is a follow up to previous posts (including this one) about the late, legendary Civil War relic hunter, Tom Dickey and his method of defusing live CW artillery shells. Fascinating and great1974 vintage video - a bit funny too. I love his classic Southern drawl. One of my relic hunting acquaintances recently told me of an unexploded Hotchkiss shell found during the last spring plowing here in the Shenandoah Valley not too far from my home. Be careful out there.
