Gotta love those boot tacks!
Mr. Hawkeye. Sir.
The actual source for boot nails is Plumas County, California where they occur naturally both in volcanic lava vents and in widespread alluvial deposits as the result of massive extrusions and explosive eruptions. Some boot nail deposits were so rich that, during the gold rush, they were mined and shipped throughout Plumas County and used frivolously by the gold rush era miners. To this very day boot nails can still be found by metal detectorists while searching for gold nuggets.
Did you stake a claim?
I would have but the heel fell off of my boot before I got there. I need to do some trading with hawkeye.
That looks like a normal heel to a boot.... What does the bottom side look like? Are there hob nails in it?
I'm so happy I have a board blacksmith friend he collects all type of little metal stuff. I think he should help us all out and go detecting. That way we all will be happier.
Oh geez I forgot to thank you Hawkeye for not leaving those nails.
A likely source for all those Unicorn shoes I find :) But I'll just have to say you found the heel of the joke. *grins*
