Oh, now this is totally cool.

But while the news man is talking, he states that their using white gloves to preserve the state it's in, then the guy with the white gloves hands it to someone not wearing any gloves???

There goes the integrity of the preservation.

That made no sense.

Thought some of you on here might enjoy this read.

The artifacts inside the copper chest were remarkably well intact. Credit for that goes to the church's Ladies Aide Society, the group that buried the capsule a century ago. The group buried the chest in double concrete walls and under 12 inches of concrete, according Fox News. It also left guidelines on how to unearth the capsule.

The chest was full of treasures. Among the finds: a newspaper from the day the capsule was buried (April 22, 1913); a dress; a telephone; a flag; a pen used by President William McKinley; a camera; and a pair of women's shoes that still had their shine. Perhaps most remarkable was a phonograph record featuring voices of citizens from the era.

A pretty good effort to bury it and ensure it was kept safe.

Good find MH, I hope they eventually have clips of the audio, I'd be very interested in that!

Mind you, they coulda given it to this dude tho;


He was 16 or so when it got buried. Mind you, kids eh.. oO
