    Luckenbooth Silver Brooch

    Was lucky to find one of my favorite ever colonial relics! This is a Scottish Luckenbooth silver brooch. Likely a wedding or engagement gift. Apparently they were sometime used on infants to keep fairies from taking them? Being that many of my Scottish ancestors landed close to where I live in the early 1700s I have always wanted to find one of these. This is a great way to wrap up a season that is quickly coming to a close. It's also another killer find right before my cruise to the Caribbean. Not sure why but I always seem to hit a great find right before my vacations. A couple of years ago it was the pine tree shilling and cob. This one will do nicely. Thanks for looking my Colonial loving friends
