Found copper item in river...

Postby Carlos » Wed Jul 12, 2017 9:12 pm

We found this today while wading/ fishing the Obed River. It's copper and the opening in the bottom seems to be filled with rock.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the replies.

The end of it looks almost like it divides into 3 separate pipes. I'll try to post a couple more pictures, it's around here somewheres.... it's about 3 inches by 3.5 inches.
