That is real nice. I found an RFD lock on an old rairoad bed once. It's definitely not as old as that one.

That's a killer piece, Ray! Yes I'm guessing it must be loaded with iron at these olde depots, yes? Are you using the Vista at these spots?

Started with the vista...too much big iron, vista works best in nails, so went to at pro. Got some wheats and other usual stuff too.

   Super, send the wheats to me, so I can then send them to Will in Pittsburgh!

I'll have a collection of wheats in no time. I want to get the ones I have out and see what dates and how many I have. I know my oldest is 1910.
