    from 1881 county History
    The Keffer tavern, being situated on the road running from Tulpehocken, in Berks county, to Sunbury, in Northumberland county, became a landmark known of all men. It was the rendez- vous of teamsters, cattle drovers, and country produce dealers generally. During the war of 1812, or rather what was then called the Baltimore war, it was the hiding place of drafted men. The saw-mill at the back of the tavern was their retreat. The Keffer tavern, after Joseph Keffer left it, was occupied continuously as a tavern until 1880, when it was destroyed by fire. Among those who resided there were Daniel Harvey, Francis Sporetzer, Nicholas Bretzius, William Hall, Jacob Ernst, Charles Feather, Samuel Kimmel, Jacob Kenemel, John Brown, Edward F. Wiest, William Hechler and Emanuel Jenkin, who resided there at the time of the fire

    It looks to me that you spent more time in research then time detecting. It's just a matter of time before you find something beyond the banner.

    LOL Yea I've been researching the town since the early '70s.

    Still learning things new, being the town is so small, there isn't allot of history written down
    about it. & some of it is wrong.

    Example the one History says the town was built in the 1915

    yet a topographic map from 1892
    not only shows the Tavern at the Cross road,
    it shows houses existed at my end of town.

    I'm sure I / We will hit it again.

    I Definitely wasn't ready to leave so quickly, but My hunting Buddies only had a short time.

    If we get another Comfortable day when we have more time, I think it's worth a more thorough hunt.

    If not for the flat top, but mine may have enviro damage up there.

    The 11 dosn't seem placed right on any, but only thing I have noticed no 1755's except counterfeit.
    and supposedly stopped style in 1754 ?
    so may be 1735 if not counterfeit ?
    my eyes are going buggy

    am confident on

    which still leaves 1775 though if the style fits the year
    which arn't even close. only see George 111 looking right in '75
