    Pretty sure your aluminum cone is a walking-stick point; I have a stick from Germany that’s shod just that same way.

    Congrats on especially that GREAT condition Roman Silver coin!!!!!!!!!

  14. empat says:

    That bell has oxidized that’s why it was in worse shape. You should put these metals into a wet tissue until you gave it to the museums for further restorations.

    English in reverse sounds just like German. So that’s how they made it.
