Thanks to my readers, the mystery object I posted yesterday has been identified.

Beloe is a picture that was sent in by Dustin P. and also by Stan.

The item was on sale on eBay for $55.  It is a microscope lens with tube.  The tube looks almost exactly like the one I found.

Here is the eBay description.  This is an VINTAGE microscope objective made by the BAUSCH & LOMB OPTICAL CO. IT IS MARKED 16 mm - 0.25 NA & in its original brass canister.

Thanks guys!

I'm fairly confident that is what my find is.  Now I think I'll try to get it open without hurting the canister to see if the lens is still inside.


An old Iraqi tank was purchased on eBay for $40,000.  When the tank arrived, $2.5 million worth of gold bars were found inside.

When Nick Mead purchased an old Iraqi tank on an auction on eBay, he was excited for the piece of military history to arrive at his home. But when Mead and mechanic Todd Chamberlain took a closer look at the large machine of war once it arrived, they were in for the shock of their life.

Not only were Mead and Chamberlain stunned at what they found, military buffs around the globe are equally shocked. As you’ll see in the video reveal below, as the duo searched the broken down tank, they expected to find rusty guns or other war-time items..

Thanks much to Linda C. who sent me that link.
