Contributed by Bucksport Historical Society
A resident of Mexico, Maine found this stone. The stone was dropped and spit, and the inside looks very much like the image of a foot on Jonathan Buck's gravestone in Bucksport.
The owner of the stone started having bad luck soon after the inside of the stone was revealed. They believed the bad luck was a direct result of the stone, so it was mailed to the Bucksport Historical Society with a note of explanation.
