Time for a story it’s too quiet here on Oldgas. So last weekend I am at work and I start getting texts from my great niece she got her first cell phone. She like me likes old junk. She and her brother and stepdad were out looking for deer sheds. On the property is old buildings and stuff so she is sending pics and videos. Nothing great but she is having fun and me too. So they try an adjacent property they just purchased. I get a text and open it and I am like wow! Her stepdad found it in the middle of the bush just a little piece of the corner sticking up. Over the years cattle have been in there and it has been stepped on so porcelain loss dents and very dirty on down side. So after work I head over and get it. Took a lot off hours cleaning this week! It’s the best I could do. Double sided porcelain verbrite marked 2x6’. Sorry about being long winded thought everyone would enjoy. Thanks Les

Awesome find and story to go with it, always great to have a story with the piece compared to just buying something.

Great story and thanks for sharing. Keeps the excitement going in your family. With my trips in the woods, I find ticks and mosquitoes!
