    1700's solid silver Luckenbooth trade brooch different design nobody has seen

    So,My find of the day is this 1700's solid silver Luckenbooth trade brooch. You can still see a small part of the pin still wrapped around the pin on back. Nobody has seen this shape of it though. a 173? KG11 copper my 13th copper for the year a cool pewter button with a back mark. never dug a pewter button with a back mark before. a few flat buttons and 2 iron hand forged strap hinges.
    Not sure technically if it's a
    Luckenbooth? since it's not heart shaped but a few people said it's a trade silver brooch.

    Target must be in the ground...Coil must swing over target...User must dig.

    Gold for the money...silver for the pleasure...copper for the history.

    This is a really intriguing find my friend. Being of Scottish descent I have a real love for these Luckenbooth pieces. The one I found is one of my favorite finds ever. But itís the normal double heart design. Iím really curious to know what the meaning of yours is. Iím going to do some digging and try to find some info. Iím curious if this is technically considered a ďLuckenboothĒ? Regardless itís an amazing find and one that has my full attention. Iíll let ya know if I find any info. Thatís s fantastic find and I consider these complete brooches to be BANNER finds. Especially one as unique as this. Very special indeed
