Here's a vid/history lesson I put together from a hunt Dirt Digler and I had about a month ago. We found a Chinese opium pipe, a Chinese coin, a gold ring, a token and a bunch of other goodies. I hope you enjoy. Please don't forget to "like" and "subscribe" happy hunting!

Sube- If there is, I'll find it! It's crazy, I've actually hit the 1700's (I might be the only one) in this state but I haven't put the coil over that seated lady yet!

Great Video once again.

Just so you are aware, that is not an opium pipe. It's a tobacco pipe. I'm not going to say that it isn't possible that opium was smoked out of it. It's just not the right kind of pipe that opium was smoked from back in those days.

Well actually, the guys said in the video the pipe MAY have been used to smoke opium LACED Tobacco, not pure opium. I think the research they did and placed in the video was very enlightening. The video was very well produced and very entertaining, great job guys! The producers of Dig Wars should take some lessons from you guys!

Yep, so maybe it was laced. Still doesn't turn a tobacco pipe into an opium pipe now does it?

Great video with great finds, keep it up.

No one said it was an "opium pipe" now did they? Nope! So before you go correcting someone else you should be sure what they said, I simply pointed out that they did not say it was an opium pipe. It's ok, you can't always be right, no one can. Have a great day!
