    Jewelry fragments, Large Cent, Silver--1683 Mass Property

    Hi everybody, hope you are well. I am posting a few jewelry fragment finds, as well as a beautiful butterfly hair barrette fragment, and a pretty nice 1830 large cent. John dug these over the weekend. I'd love to be able to date the butterfly barrette, but I can't find any legitimate antique jewelry or hair ornament websites. The barrette itself seems to be brass, I think, but there are hints of gilding on it. The clasp looks very old. It too appears to be brass. Delicate and ornate--wish he could find the other half of it! I've also posted a pretty silver or pewter heart locket fragment. It's hard to see, but inside is a crude etching that says "I love you." He also found what looks like a solid silver fragment of jewelry or perhaps a serving dish. It has a hallmark of "H "on it. Lastly, he found an 1874 silver plated spoon.

    Update: John just texted me a group photo of his finds from this afternoon, plus a couple of the things he found over the weekend. There seems to be a horse item with rosettes on it, and several bullets, etc. We're not sure what everything is, do you recognize anything? I think the coolest thing he found is that piece of wood. You probably can't see it, but there is an old bullet lodged inside it. Wow! Sorry if the order of the photos do not match the order of what I have written.

    Okay, I am off to browse the Today's Finds forum. As always, thanks for looking and for your comments and knowledge. -Lisa & John

    Great finds. The hallmarked silver could be mid 1800s or even older. I'm curious to what that is... nice LC and relics as well. That site is going to be producing for a while... keep harvesting HH!

    Congratualtions on the nice relic recoveries! The bullet in the wood is very interesting.

    Thanks, Professor. Funny thing about the bullet in the wood (although probably from a tree or old outbuilding)--The home has a clapboard front, but beneath is a wall of brick, apparently to withstand bullets and arrows. Cool stuff. L&J
