Went back up to my silver mine in the mountains for a few hours,found 2 wheats from the 40s and was about to call it quits. On the way back to the car I get a large signal next to a tree,I started digging away the pine needles and just under the dirt I pulled out a 100 year old shotgun, when it came out it was whole,but after a day the wood parts just crumbled. Thanks for lookin. Hh

That is a cool find.  Any markings on the barrel so you can ID the manufacturer.  A serial number would let you date it to the exact year if it has one.

Really Great Find!

Now that's a unique find. Shame that it came apart. Any idea on the age?
