138) Blacksmith expert visits

138)  Blacksmith expert visits - December 31, 2001
                 Blacksmith Bob Valentine visits the tavern and inspects all the door hardware in the building.  He is an expert in early American iron hardware.  He takes notes and will be producing an inventory of the door latches and door hinges in the building.  Many of the hardware items are thought to be from the early 1800's and late 1700's.  It is amazing the clues an expert can piece together by looking at simple details on an early iron door latch.
