    A beautiful 1746 colonial silver spur and a few other finds

    Was able to finally get out and make some good finds from an old plantation landing by working the mud flats and shallows. My best find was a hallmarked solid silver spur that was made in London in 1746 according to the hallmark research.
    I have searched for a match to the silversmith’s initials “WC” but haven’t found one yet. Any ID help would be appreciated! Also found a half reale and a few buttons.

    That is truely an amazing find.
    Cru'dad found an earlier version, nearby was a silver buckle, so look out for that, should be 2!
    The London hallmark of 1746 is spot on, I can't make out the first letter very easily but that is definitely a 'C' that was popular in that period, as seen by Cook, Crespin etc..
    I'm afraid I don't have the right books to pin it down any further than you have. CONGRATS

    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.
