Default Some lake dog tags

Lake level is lowering so Iím detecting in the muck, there has been a ton of people there this past summer, more than Iíve ever seen before, yet finding gold or silver rings had been a bust so far (not years prior) anyway, got a junk beer opener ring of all things and these two dog tags. First for me - assistance dog. Same hole had the license. Second license Iíve found for this county. Donít know if old or not but doubt it. Still better than zinc cents and bottle caps. And just glad to be getting back out.

Thanks Tom, I have a baseball display box (?) I got at the craft store, and have these sitting in one of the cubies. Riker boxes work nice too.

Nice finds. Can I ask which lake you're hitting? Don't worry as about me, I hate water hunting. Just curious.
