Digger Bob Posted March 5, 2008 Report Share Posted March 5, 2008 I do believe I have found one of those oddities that a few other people have found. Here's a couple of pics of what looks like an old cartridge casing with the top crimped over. If you look at it with a glass, there is some sort of fiber wadding stuffed inside just poking out the edge. It's heavy too, 14 dwt exactly.Can you experts out there identify the caliber or give me some background on it? It appears to be a 50 caliber, but with no ridge on the base to hold it in the chamber. There is a ring around the base and it's a rim fire. The top has been intentionally crimped.I'm hoping it's full of gold but it could be just dirt. I'm tempted to open it and see if there's anything inside but at the same time I'd kinda like to keep it as it is for a conversation piece.At any rate, I'd like to know more about it. Can anyone help?Digger Bob Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
