    Pewter Mug??

    Co-worker found while hunting. He saw it sticking out of the dirt and this is what he found. Does anyone have any information about it?

    Your friend made a nice knick knack find, that is the state seal of Delaware on the mug.

    Don


    Since it has three other dates on it that are the official state seal, that can only be used with approval from the state, so it is as suggested most likely a 200th anniversary mug honoring the seal itself, maybe The three dates in small print above the 1793 are 1793, 1847 and 1907, which are the three dates the seal was modified before 2004.

    Ah, since the one date on it is 1907, it sure is no older than that, but will still agree with Cru that it is possibly a 200th anniversary mug, making it possibly as late as 1993. Has he looked for any makers mark on the bottom?
