I am wildly impressed how much has already been uncovered about ol bone.
  Cool, Thanks!!

  It is definitely bone. I use both bone and horn in my life. No 
confusing those two.

Who knows how the bone got there. Its expertly inlaid alright, but what 
does that mean?

   There is one seeming intentional gap in the boning. It appears the 
wood was cut away to inlay the bone but that one square intentionally 
left. Its a very tight neat job.
yours scott
