Relic Hunting Post #149 - Another Artifact Display Ready
These forty pieces of Civil War lead and two shell fragments from Hotchkiss shells are ready to be mounted in a glass shadow box/display case. Almost as much as I love actually researching and recovering historical artifacts here in Virginia, I also love cleaning and displaying them. Displays like the one pictured here make great conversation pieces as well as providing an opportunity to share my passion and knowledge about the items displayed, as well as about history in general. Though it's a good problem to have, with each passing year I'm quickly running out of room to display my finds. I utilize my 2 offices as well as my home's parlor, though my wife is beginning to grumble about that.
