Laurent Dubois and a Paul Revere Copper Spike

Thanks to Richard Brandolini for sharing this picture of a very happy diver:

Laurent and Spike

He’s pointing to where the symbols “U S” are stamped on the shaft of the spike.  It identifies it as one that was made in Paul Revere’s foundry for the government. 

There’s lots of debris in the water from fanning for treasure like this.  His gloves are silt-covered and dirty from the digging.

He was having a grand time.

Good fun.

    Just popped by and I see you’re from/in Gloucester… old stomping grounds. I’m originally from Salem.
    I found you on Claude’s blog in Paris, and I believe you came by way of Ronni’s blog.
    Small world and nice blog you have here.
