    Default $4 'Unusual Stone' :)

    The folks at the antique store were probably wondering why I was grinning like a Cheshire cat as I paid for this $4 'Unusual Stone'.

    Cool

    I got my Coti at a flea market for around that price It's not as cool as yours but will put a nice edge on my razors! Mine is similar to the bottom one on your stack.

    So you take it up to the counter to buy it and the guy says, oh!, wait a minute, that's a valuable coticule, I can't sell it to you for that, we'll have to add a couple zero's to that 4. And then you say, can I see a manager please? And he says, I am the manager....

    If I ever stumbled across a coticule in the wild, that would be my luck!
