I feel privilaged to be able to be the first one to break in this new section!

Ok...here are a few tips on how to go about explaining your finds...

-A picture is worth a thousand words! In most cases, a picture is the only way for someone to ID a find. So, please try to include one.
-Give the size
-Try to tell us the material it is made of.
-And tell us all other distinguishing characteristics.

Good luck on getting your find identified!!! Very Happy
