(BANNER) Snakes - one was patriotic

20 posts in this topic

Was on a group hunt this past weekend down south. Day one, early into the hunt I found this patriotic button with a snake on the rim. Not wanting to scratch it and not sure what it was, I placed it safely in cotton balls and a hard case to be looked over later. Here it is cleaned up a little with a toothpick. I'm starting to see some shine peaking through. Would appreciate any advice on next step in cleaning/preserving. The real snake was found on day 2. Think it is a yellow rat snake.

Man, this is the second one I've seen in a few days.  I think relics have a mind of their own and decide to come out of hiding!
