    That's pretty amazing. I seriously think that I would have every piece of that desk gathered and take it to a furniture restoration expert. Just because it is in such a state of disrepair doesn't mean it is not historically/monetarily valuable. Just look at what you found inside it!!!

    Absolutely unbelievable.
    Contact the Keno Bros. about the desk and maybe the Smithsonian about the pocketbook (looks 20 years old!) and documents.

    Need detectorists for the grounds of that old house?

    Re: Found a pocket book....216 years old!

    This is one of the most amazing, unique and fascinating finds I've ever seen here!!

    I would seriously consider contacting a historical society in Boston and set up an appt. to meet with someone about this. It reminds me of something one would see on "Antique Roadshow."

    The documents may be worth a great deal of money, but the artifact history of it may be priceless - it could also lead to a great ancestry search!!!

    I'm in awe! Thank you so much for sharing - this one deserves to be on the banner for a long time!
