    Knights Templar fob? US revival.

    So with a lot of hurry up and wait going on at work, I have been doing a bunch of historical map overlays. Found and empty lot next to a church, asked permission, granted, was told house was mid 1800s, burned in the 1970s and the lot was purchased by the church.

    Is the KY referring to Kentucky? I saw Versailles on there also and we have a town by that name here.

    Very definitely from the Versailles Commandery of the York Rite in KY. I found this page that mentions them: THE GRAND COMMANDERY OF KENTUCKY YORK RITE - THE HISTORY OF THE GRAND COMMANDERY OF KENTUCKY

    That is a cool find.

    I live in Louisville. I just recently got my detector and have been digging mostly at parks and yards. They aren't too obliging here with the laws.

    Yeah I heard a "story" that some detectorist was getting hassled by an old lady for digging in a park. He ended up telling her to F off. Turned out she was some high city officials mother or wife. Dunno if its true or not but makes me careful to watch my temper when hassled in parks.
    I have permission for a house built in the 1920's and my wife's aunt owns a big mansion around 1850 there. Haven't had time to make a trip to Louisville to detect yet. If so we could hook up.

    I have been hunting in a couple big parks where it's easy to go unnoticed haha. I've had the best luck at my grandparents house but I'm pretty sure I covered it all twice over by now. It's time to find a new yard haha
