Description:

The wooden pick handle is much worn, rotting near its base and farther up, mended with electric tape. Perhaps Mr. Walker was thinking of another pick when he told me of discovering a cache of unused picks when he cleared away a collapsed root house to make way for his present house. Samuel (A.W.) Spetch must have intended them for sale.
