How cool is that... an original 1882 leaning against a tree... there's a chance it could have been left there for 100 years or more.

Good point Pete.

An awesome find for sure. I would love to find something like that, then preserve it...no restoration...as a wall hanger.

It was probably left behind when the user ran out of ammunition. Somebody didn't realize that you could get more powder and balls for it.

I would be digging around the tree for the owners remains. Might actually be a grave marker. Told you it gets your imagination going.

That's an interesting point Mac...they tended to do things like that back in the 1800's.
