    Can anyone give any insight on this piece?

    I think it might be silver, pewter would flake and steel rust. Also looks like a quaker couple with the lady having a cross around her neck. Found in Greensboro NC. Random patch of woods.Click image for larger version.

    The characters on the piece appear to be Quakers, if that is of any intrest.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Not Quakers. Maybe Dutch.

    The art looks like something from one of the old masters - like Vermeer or Rembrandt or Hals. I looked for a while but didn't find a match.

    I'm guessing the back will show where a pin was attached making this item a Victorian Renaissance fashion brooch.
