    they are the old style ceramic / glass type beads --these were found at an Indian allies / Spanish mission trading post site in Nassau county , Florida burnt down by English raiders WHO came across the border from Georgia during 1702.

    Re: indain trade beads

    that is the much largertype bead and way cool I might add ---mine it is clear to see (look at the cent for sizing) are the finer sized ones used in bead work on clothing -- of the type common with the cherokee indains type items

    Re: indain trade beads

    Hi all , figured I’d throw my two cents in here , anyway got out sat. , first time in a long time . It was more of a walk down memory lane then anything . One thought I had was ,about finding seed-beads .
    I’ll start at the beginning , In around 1804? To about 1820 +/- the Russians traded cobalt-blue beads for fur , Spain didn’t control Alta California , own yes . So now we have some cobalt-blue Russian trade beads in and around San Diego County , not yet in my collection . Now to have a truly “good” collection around here you need to have , lets say one blue Russian trade-bead ! About 25 yrs . Ago I was looking through a friends collection and I was surprised to see maybe a doz. Or so beads . Well, ends-up that he’s as surprised that I don’t have any !! He assured me that I was looking in the right areas , but probably not looking for them correctly ? He told me first , you need to get down low, on all fours and look out at 6ft. + . . Why? Well, maybe hard to believe but these beads lay hole up 99% of the time , the hole full of dirt when you look down on them , you would see the dirt ,with a tiny bit of dark-blue around them ,very hard to see . But ,when your way down low , sun on your back , you will see a very bright blue side of the bead . He had been told this by a very-experienced collector .
    Well , a few yrs. Later I was crawling one of my favored areas , and out at 6+ ft there was this bright blue dot , I know what it was !! I crawled over it had a look straight down gone ... , hole up as he said . Anyway, it worked ONCE for me .
    So , remember when you have the “seed-bead need” Stop ,Drop and Crawl with the sun on your back

    Sincerely; Blindpig

    hey blindpig, I have had very good luck crawling on hands and knees with my knee pads on and a pair of leather gloves

    more people should try this, but I would only recommend this in a high percentage area because you can't cover much ground
