The military is non-too pleased about the results of their experiment and so decide to destroy the facility where the experiment took place, hoping to zap the entire facility and its new undead tenants. A local yakuza gang decides to take up residence in the facility – they think it will be a perfect backdrop for their big stolen jewelry business deal. Now we’re left with gangsters, zombies, and military personnel all swarming around the facility in search of money, flesh, and total annihilation . . . respectively.
8 reales my favorite of all coins.. years ago mastering my Whites 4900 model metal detector . i found my first Spanish silver.
A 1733 1 reale from Seville Spain. That coin was third found that night.. the prior two coins were elephant coins from a child's toy cash register..I was so close chucking it into the street But since i am not a litterer and thinking a car would run it over and snapping it back for me to find later. I put the coin in my pocket for proper disposal .. needless to say i was shocked at what the coin really was when i later cleaned out my pocket to find a reale coin.. The coin was donated to "That place " Kinda makes me think i should have photographed my finds back then. Since i won't advertise the location..of "that place" believe me nothing would please me more than to have tons of trespassers hunting on those ingrates play pen... I did rather hone a great deal of practise with my Whites 4900. three years of daily outings it got to the point of me knowing what it was before digging the object out. and being correct seventy percent of the time. Since i don't want to even think of going back to photograph my finds i donated to them ill just go by recollections. Actually i got my notes than to go by memory... 1786 Connecticut penny 3/20/90 1700 not identifiable 4/6/90 175? British George II 8/2/90 a wonderful full struck 1734 British George II 8/2/90 , this penny had no damage or corrosion it did have the typical green verdigris but fully adhered to the coin and if it had not been a dug specimen it would rate unc. the penny was next to an iron ads. or finish iron for fine work rather small. i remember the aggravating game of detecting this coin would play me as the many different ways i approach it, waving the coil over it sounded great loud and most time give the un pleasant iron junk sound. but that one tiny great sound out of the majority of skips chatter of iron. i decided to go for it .. glad i did. 1733 Spanish one reale @ 6 inches os good soil that had no grass the coin was rated ex fine no damage at all and had a good shine when rinsed.. 11/20/91 1751 one reale Mexico @ 6 inches in grass soil 3/10/92 this coin rated at fine condition. also this coin opened up a small dump pit lots of flint glass red slip ware pottery , and salt glazed , window glass fragments and flooring cut nails.and two buttons clay pipe stems. The spread of these artifacts and location , i have determined i located shop or stable. the shop is more what I'm thinking due to an early 18th century map and not much has changed to the area the spread of artifact were in a area of twelve feet by twenty. and a 1722 farthing Rosa Americana wonderful clear detail .. funny though after careful rinsing it did start to disintegrate right before my eyes.. it was encased in clear finger nail polish to keep the thing intact. Also a wonderful early American silversmiths piece Thomas Grant of Marblehead a salt spoon or tea spoon ( rather between the two sizes) a wonderful scallop design and monogram last letter "M?" "L" the first letter is worn to make a good identification. The sad thing about this place is all the history with it. New members clambering for ideas to get people interested in the place and none of them ever looked at the very property they own. all of the property's past history has died when we were drummed out .. and none of them will ever know what i know about it . its too bad that it went that way... as we began a excellent friendship with the original past owner of the property who owned the the property since 1818. The past owners had sat with us and she had brought her father with her . our first meeting was so anticipated because i had years ago started to clean up the many 1900-1960's refuse dumps in the back property. one of the 1950c dumps i found a solid sterling silver mans bracelet " Charles" and i knew who that belonged to.. so when they arrived. I was thrilled to present a gift to Charles his silver bracelet his wife gave him decades ago but lost in the trash dump in the back yard. The site has so many more story's to tell and thanks to back stabbing elitist new members who gave nothing, did little took credit for others hard work. A lot of the history and knowledge remains in my head and notes. and maybe some one will look at our efforts and ask about the things past members should have been interested in.
Lead Crystal, Coins, Lens
Chandiler crystal on the left with a chip in it. They add Lead Oxide to increase the refractive index of the glass to produce more prism-like effects than with regular glass. It's technically not "crystal" at all. In center are collection of coins, 2 nickels on top, 2 pennies on left-bottom and 2 dimes on right-bottom. Why in pairs? Each coin's composition is different. One nickel is 75% copper, 25% nickel, while the other is a 1943 "War Nickel" made during WWII when metals were being rationed. It contains 35% silver, 56% copper and 9% manganese. One penny is post-1982 when they began to mint pennies as copper-plated zinc, while the other is pre-1982, when they were made solid of an alloy of 95% copper and the remainder zinc. One dime is pre-1964, when they were made of "junk silver", or 90% silver and 10% copper, while modern dimes are cupronickel-clad copper. Explanation seems moot as there turned out to be little penetration difference, if any. On the right side is a lens made of glass. It's thickness in the middle is thicker than the leaded glass on the left.
