The Colonel had a great deal to say, very little of which is fit to print;but your motto about sums it up. PS: This was actually the second time that this had happened, the first time was when I "borrowed" her jeep to pick up a 200# Parrott shell.

I was planning on buying a 15" ball from Harry.  He actually offered to crate it up and ship it to Hawaii by freight.  He said "no problem."    Then he came back with the price:  $2,000.   I still want to add one to my collection one day.

To prevent a repeat of previous mishaps, she then went out and bought a Mini Cooper (which is too small to haul a tube of toothpaste, much less a hunk of iron) and would not allow me to have the keys.

long before my 1st shell,  late 80's, little antique shop in waynesville oh had 3 weird large cannon balls with 3 fuses sitting outside in the grass. not knowing anything and cannon balls should only have 1 fuse, and pre internet, took awhile to find out they were real . beside, they looked really heavy, and the car was a long way away. 2 hr drive to get there, so took a month to get back and I hurried to the store. well they were gone.looking back,  at $40 each, wish I had bought one anyway, but it was alot of money then for a guy starting a family

I can relate to that. shoot we all can probably. On that subject, If you know Steve Mullinax's code you can decipher when and how much he paid for his artifacts. I've seen some prices that would make you cry, wishing you could go back to that time period.
