Strange but good find


Allen in MT

Recommended Posts

No gold but a nice find

Was out East of Morristown detecting when I got s good booming signal. Underneath 4 inched of dirt was this Case 316-5 XX knife. the handle had been completed rotted off. The the blade cleaned up nice.

Wonder how long it laid out there for the handle to rot off?

Some before pictures and one after it was cleaned up some.

Had to leave AZ the day after this find due to a death in the family

Thats a really neat find.

You aught to put a handle on it and you would have a really

cool knife with a story behind it :)

It actually looks like a brand new old knife. Hardly ever used.

Sorry to hear about your loss Allen.

I believe they did Home.

Homefire, Looking it up I do think as you said that it had a leather handle, Will probably find someone to do some type of handle for it

Bill. Drove about 13 hrs the 1st day and 16 hrs the 2nd. Susy made it to the hospital about 10pm and he dies at 1045pm. It was like he was holding on long enough for here to get there

David had a massive stroke and was unresponsive to any stimules for 5 days

Guys, thanks for your thoughts and prayers. He is in a better place now.

ALLEN & SUSSIE, SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT THE DEATH IN THE FAMILY. WE WILL BE LEAVING FOR AZ. THE DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS.

THE METAL IN THAT CASE KNIFE HELD UP REAL GOOD. WILL LOOK GREAT WITH A NEW HANDLE .

TAKE CARE,

Sorry to hear of the death. As U always say... The body may be gone, but the memories will always bring a smile, so keep them close.

As for a handle, that's right up Frank's (SGTFDA) alley.
