Treasure where you least expect it

As promised I have a good story. I apologize in advance if this "treasure" being sold offends anyone. I was going through a box of stuff I dug at parks several years back. One of the items caked with dirt looked like many of the plumbing fixtures I dig up from time to time. After closer inspection and nearly tossing it in the scrap copper bucket, it looked kind of odd so I cleaned it up a bit. Turns out it is a pipe used for something a little more wacky than tobaccey! When I took one of the parts off I saw an inscription showing it was called a "Proto Pipe". Ebay auction just ended - sold for $56.00. More than many of the gold rings I've found and sold. Just goes to show that some of the junk you dig up may warrant closer inspection. One mans trash....
