    Help identify. K.S.F?

    This was found at an old site, approximately 1850s. Previously found some Indian Head pennies 1863-1870, and a military button around the same time. The shield has 13 stars, and bottom of wreath has the letters K.S.F Click image for larger version.

    Creskol may be onto something.

    • Knights of Sherwood Forest - an appendant degree of the Foresters of America established in 1879 in St. Louis. It was described as both a "benevolent" as well as a semi-military or uniformed group within the Foresters. It was recognized as the second level degree for the organization at the Philadelphia Subsidiary High Court in 1883. At the time the Knights numbered some 1,700 in 50 Subordinate Conclaves governed by a Supreme Conclave of the World.[12] It was extinct by the early 1920s.[13]
