Rolland, How rare is a 1913 NP date nail? Found it at Cyr, MT in 2003. I remember as a kid in Auburn, WA I found an aluminum tag, about the size of a quarter nailed into a few ties. It didn't have a 'date' per se, but was stamped with a code. This could have been a BN thing, as this was 1977, or back in the day!
A few years back Montana DOT was re-aligning US Hwy 12 by Melstone and had piled lots of old Milwuakee ties for removal, I stopped and found quite a few copper nails!!
