Default Wyatt or Doc's shot glass

Who knows - I dug a shot glass in the Tombstone, Az dump that has a broken rim piece. Who's to say if it wasn't Wyatt's or Doc's glass. He might have finished his drink, thrown it up & shot it to break it

That's the story & I am sticking to it. All the other stuff dug with it was old Tombstone period dated. steve in so az

I like your imagination. I found 2 quarters on the beach today and I know George Washington lost them himself. I know this because he put his picture on them!

As likely an event as anything else. I should go to Dodge City and see if I can find a shot glass there that Wyatt may have drank from.

Earp was a teetotaler by then.. But I'll wager that Doc had his hands on just about every shot glass in Tombstone...

I once found a bullet casing next to a Jefferson Nickel .... I think it's enough to convict.

He was here before he went to Dodge. So was Billy the Kid and Jesse Chisholm.

How is the hunting down there Steve? I was stationed at Ft. Huachuca a couple years ago, with all the history around I really wish I had started metal detecting sooner.
