    Re: 1800's Era Brooch Pin With 25 Stones

    No problem. Most of the relics and coins from the spots dated from the late 1700's to mid 1850's. I would have to say older than the 50's for sure though. It looks similar to that art deco era but doesn't match up. If anything I would have to say victorian era. 1850 to 1900. I am no expert but have found alot of relics in my time. Too deep and not the right alloy for the time period.

    Very nice finds!! That pin is cool, probably mid 1800's to early 1900's at newest. If its old those stones could be real I wonder what the big blue one is...

    That's an exciting find. I would research when they started making that kind of pin back. It looks fairly modern.

    Wow!

    If I saw that come out of the ground, it would have raised my pulse rate considerably! WTG!

    I know what you mean about pewter. The only military belt plate I've ever dug was a War of 1812 Light Dragoons plate, and if it had been brass, it would've been nice, but the pewter was all flaky and the plate was bent. Still super rare, though.

    Re: 1800's Era Brooch Pin With 25 Stones

    Thanks for the replies. When I first found it I was like wow to my son. I said look at this Jake. He's 4 and he liked it to. All we could see was that big blue stone in the middle. Everyone who has dug a ring before knows how a stone looks in the dirt. They look really nice for some reason. I don't know if that is due to looking at dirt for while and then all the sudden you see a gem or gold. I didn't even know it had all the other stones in it.

    I did some research and those types of pin backs go back the the mid 1800's. I have other one's like this from the 20's 30's and up and they are made of alot more solid alloy. Like brass or copper or gold or silver. This one is pewter I'm almost certain of it with a gold gilding. That type of stuff is found in early silver ware and buttons. So I was just taking a good guess that it is from 1850 to 1900.

    Weather I fully get it identified it was still fun to find it. It has no makers mark so I couldn't research it. I should have did a before and after pic to show you guys how it looked and how much oxidation was on this before I cleaned it. I have a 4 step cleaning process for items like this. And in some cases I can get stuff looking new. So sure it could look like it's from the 50's after that.

    Thanks again all

    It sure looks Victorian to me. And since the Victorian era spanned 1837 to 1901, "Victorian" in this context could certainly mean mid-1800's. I personally would've guessed the later 1800's, but I know little on this subject and it would have been just that- a guess.
