Another nice buffalo nickel pulled from the forgiving soil of Rockport Park, this one with the clearly visible date of 1919; the year of the Boston Molasses Disaster, when a giant wave of molasses burst forth from an exploding storage container and swept 20 unfortunate Bostonians to their deaths. One onlooker responded to the tragedy by declaring, "It looked like a sweet way to go."

Back at the park in Rockport and found this wonderful three-inch skeleton key. It's a bit bent, but then again, so am I.

Found this in a park in Rockport. It is one of the nicest Indians I have turned up yet. The soil in this particular park seems to have low acidity, as the the coins coming out have much less damage than those I find elsewhere.
