    yeah nobody has seen one this shape but it's definitely 1700's and most likely a cravat pin and was made special for someone

    Well Dave not surprisingly I have been unable to find anything of similar design. I would love to know what that design represents. To me it’s unique and beautifully done. I’m in love with these early silver brooches. It’s a fantastic piece to add to your collection

    Thanks so much for trying! Nobody seems to be able to find it. We think it was a custom made piece for somebody special. Really appreciate you taking the time to research.

    Congrats again, my friend. Awesome find. It's very rare to find solid silver items from the colonial era and you got a really nice one. I will join Ahab and the others with a Banner vote.

I’m curious if this is technically considered a “Luckenbooth”? Regardless it’s an amazing find and one that has my full attention. I’ll let ya know if I find any info. That’s s fantastic find and I consider these complete brooches to be BANNER finds. Especially one as unique as this. Very special indeed
    luckenbooth doesn't mean heart shaped. The name comes from the Luckenbooths of Edinburgh where jewelery and trinkets used to be sold. Luckenbooth is a Scots word for a lockable stall or workshop. The Edinburgh booths were situated on the Royal Mile near St Giles Cathedral. They were the city's first permanent shops, going back to the 15th century, and initially housing mainly silversmiths and goldsmiths. They were demolished in 1817. By the mid 18th century Luckenbooth tokens also featured heavily as trade silver items to the indigenous peoples of the Eastern Woodlands, particularly the Iroquois

    Sure looks like you are having a great year HEAVYMETALNUT. Thirteen coppers at the mid-year point is very impressive....and so is that broach!
