    That's probably the best slave tag that I've ever seen. No wonder it made the banner so quickly! Congratulations on that one!

    "Find of a Lifetime" is not an exaggeration in this case!! Huge Congratz!!

    Do you have someplace you can get it officially authenticated, documented and valued?

    I was walking around poking my chest out with my Script "I" War of 1812 button and LS walks over and drops that one on me. Jealous but happy for him.

    Looking around the internet, I have only seen one No. 1 of any trade. In this condition, this early, a less common trade and a No. 1. This one is very special.

    I'm guessing, that the "Fisher" designation, was this slave's skill set..., right?

    Thanks, Steve.
    Someone told me that those records burned. I haven't read that, though and it's definitely worth looking into.

    congrats on your banner find, a #1 of a slave badge just wow
    some info on Lafar badges in 1814-15


    The tag recovered from the main house excavations
    is typical of those issued during odd-numbered
    years, is diamond shaped and measuring 70 mm square.
    Stamped is Charleston across the top, No. (followed
    by the punched numerals 187), Mechanic, and 1815.
    On the reverse is stamped Lafar.While we no longer
    can match this tag to its owner, we do know that in
    the fiscal year 1814-1815 there were 1,898 tags produced
    by John Joseph Lafar (1781-1849), who worked as a silversmith in Charleston.

    maybe these guys that did the dig can help with more info & authentication

    FISHER IS EXTREMELY RARE tag
    could bring its price above other tags by double or triple
    Im sure many museums would love to have it
    you might want to insure if you are not gonna sell it
