And maybe belt rig. Stuff on the left of the pic was scattered finds on site, but the 80 bullets, folding spoon, sword hanger, lead backing, and the box finial, was found in a 5'x5' area along side of the road in heavy trash, emi, and in soil littered with bits of iron. The Anfibio Multi did the job well, too well, I had to chisel these relics out the hard dry ground ...dare I complain. Think I'll get back in the river til we get some rain

It's pretty solid but I won't be able to use electrolysis, so it will be a longer process, but I'll post a pic when it's done. Happy to have finally found one complete.
