    Re: Backyard Dig

    Great dig, love the blobs. It's a bit of a mystery why there was older stuff under them though. I couldn't see anyone leaving those great blobtops behind. Congrats.

    I'd tend to agree with sandchip now that we have the measurements. It's way too small to be a CD 61 battery rest. Real nice find and very scarce. That's the first one I've seen in probably 10 years....
