Remember these metal plates...I found them on a treasure hunt. One said, "Cope" and the other said, "Drag". I had no idea why anybody would create such metal tags...but, Betty, a blog reader did... and this is what she told me...."In foundry work, the terms 'Cope' and 'Drag' refer respectively to the upper and lower parts of a two-part casting flask, used in sand casting." There you have it! Thank you Betty! And now this metal plate refers to life....just "Cope". It all works out!
