No idea of value but welcome from Oklahoma, and that's a very cool find!

Gumba, Welcome from Western Washington! Great find but I wouldn't have a value. I would just keep it and look at it everyday...

Welcome to the forum from central Arkansas and even tho KT does not know what it is worth, it's a great looking find! KT would frame it and hang it in a shadow box!
