    Holy huge fur trade silver!

    I have been searching the dense Michigan woods for a number of years and rarely come across a piece of trade silver in such amazing condition. After a 2+ hour (uneventful) search this evening I finally hit something on the side of a washed out creek bank...possibly washed out during the spring thaw. The fur trade gods shine down upon thee!!

    Qtip and water. The dirt and grime wiped right off. Then I used a soft polishing cloth to give the haze off.

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    No Maker's Mark that I can find. There is a small mark where some idiot nicked it with the shovel when he was extracting from the ground...but I don't think that counts.
