Mysterious Metal Tag Found By Smithfield Man Inside Tree May Link Lumber To Logan Cemetery
A Smithfield man cut into an unexpected mystery when he found a round metal tag embedded in birch wood he was preparing for a home project.
Rod Hyatt had slats milled from the birch tree locally but found the surprise after he’d started working with them.
“As I was looking at them, there’s a couple of nails I could see that he’d nicked with his saw as he’d cut through it in a couple of places,” Hyatt said. “So I went to dig this one out and pull this one out before I’d run it through my planer, and I pulled that tag out.” Read the rest of the story on HJnews.com.
