    It could have been something that some teen made for his sweetheart or someone he liked. The letters are very symmetrical, almost too symmetrical for just trying out some punches. The set probably didn't have a "+" so he used an H instead which resembles it. BJ + BP. Definitely not in the same class as the traditional love tokens of the late 1800's hand engraved on a sanded silver coin, but could very well have served a similar function. Cool find.

    If I was to make a plus sign, I'd either use the X and turn it slightly, or, a T......once right side up, and then flip it upside down overlapping the top.

    I think that wheatie traveled 100 yrs back in time and got a lot of counterstamps due to its strange size and look. Nice finds buddy, I hope we can get out hunting soon

    Thanks Eric, I had to take another look, I remember thinking the H was the "&" sign when I originally found it standing in chest deep water. Only BJ and BP know for sure? lol
