    It's certainly been square nailed to something.
    Almost appears to be a spoon with the handle broken off

    I think you got it. A spoon that has been flattened.

    It looks like a spoon bowl with the handle missing, but................................. A lead spoon?
    Cool find, though!

    It is a pewter spoon bowl. Handle is broken off. Dates from the 1700s.

    From what I understand, the shell design was popular in the late 1700s. I find these frequently in early 1800s sites, for the simple reason that the spoons took a while to import (those that were imported), and move west. I also figure that most folks brought their dinnerware with them when they moved west, and used it until it broke.

    Good to hear from you, my friend.


    Best Wishes,
