    Hello Lars, Yes, I've picked them all up over the last several hundred years and have passed on who knows How many "questionable" ones. Like I said, the fakers have finally tumbled on to them, so it's not very easy to find them anymore. I have a few trusted diggers that I've gotten to know over the years, and I pretty much stick with them these days, but they seem to be bottoming out on finding them too now. But, as you know, digging goes like that. Some years they'll find, say, shell case Ash trays everywhere, and the next year not a one shows up! It's just the luck of the draw, I guess!
