This is a 25+ year old Tack Ball, it was done and flattened when handed to me in 2005. Surveyor John E Wade, Jr PLS said it was lost under a tool box when installed in a new 1989 was at least 5 years old then,maybe 1984. It's funny the things we hang on to.

Do you have any old tack balls laying around that you'd like to share???  Let's see them!

Man, I haven't seen or used a tack ball in years.We called ours "Gary Wallace."  Geez.  Now I have to dig up an old tack ball.
