    Very cool! The meadowlands farm house is a historical landmark and was built by John Ewing (a surveyer) in 1826. I used to deliver news papers there in my teen years. Lol. Always loved that place.

    Very interesting finds my friend, love that musket trigger guard and those beautiful Indian Heads!
    I wonder if the 'Treashier' badge, was originally attached to a horse bridle?

    Thx! I think it is a horse bridle tag from a race horse. I haven’t had any luck finding a registry of race horse names online.

    I used this site to trace a bridle plate I found years ago which belonged to the niece of Northern Dancer.
