    My Find Of A Lifetime

    I dug this 1813 Charleston CARPENTER slave tag #35,January,7th.2007.
    I have dug several others,but this is my best!
    There are only 4 1813 CARPENTER slave tags known..1 in the Charleston,S.C. Museum..3 in private hands.
    This is the lowest numbered one to date.
    I have included actual photos of the tag being dug.

    The tag is 2" x 1&7/8" (approx) It would have been worn around the neck with a string or chain.

    There's no way that wouldn't be one of the best!

    In fact, I can practically guarantee you that they'd love to have an article about it, too!

    Heck, you've already done the research and got the photos... why not go for it?
