    Digging up colonial stuff

    Few hours today. Found one part of a cuff-link, looks like its got a sailor ship on it, little colonial buckle frame, a heart shape chip thingy, hand full flat buttons, pewter spoon handle and one side of a buckle.. I have no idea what that lead with knobs is.

    I love that cufflink, I have never seen one like that before. Probably from the 1790's. Great variety of finds, the shoe buckle frame is another rare find, hard to find them intact. Looks like an extremely promising site!

    Really nice finds Tentis, Congrats!

    Maybe someone could ID the type of ship by the rigging style. I know the Dutch did a lot of those fine enameled images. If it's Dutch, it could be a slave ship!

    Best wishes, and good luck!

    Great hunt. Love the ship cufflink. Like I said on FB, it was likely worn by an early mariner. BTW, the lead knob thing is actually "sprue" which is the excess lead that they cut off from a bullet mold. It just got bent over into that shape.
