Tallio Cufflinks - Release the Hounds!
I dug these brass Tallio cufflinks today at an old site. I know they are fairly common, but a first for me. Personal relics are great. I'm guessing 1790's on these based on other finds at the site, maybe a little later. Sound right?

...if you think I'm a pain in the neck, it's lower, lower,little bit lower, too low, higher, there ya go.....

your idea of Fairly Common and mine is a difference between night and day.
Very cool find, never seen or heard of them before.

Thanks all. Sorry, I was referring more to the fox hunt design as being fairly "common" or popular on cufflinks and buttons from that period. I'm thrilled with these. Believe me, I know that no colonial relic is "common" per se These were a real tiny beep too. I got lucky. Thanks again.
