Hocking Valley Block

Hocking Valley Block 2 8-3-17

Location found: Nelsonville, Ohio, 8/3/17

Weight: 9lb 11.0oz

Dimensions: 9 x 4 x 3 1/4in

This block has a distinctive defect, on the bottom there is a vertical line that is not seen on any other blocks of its type. The interesting thing about this mark is that it happened during manufacturing. The cut is glazed, which means that is was put there before the brick was fired in the kiln.
