    Definitely a 2 drachm apothecary weight, probably 18th century (or maybe a little earlier). Nice find Jason!

    Thanks, Bill. It's from the same site as the Mass Silvers and my hammered, so it very well could be pretty early.

    Thanks for the input guys! I was hoping that maybe I cracked into the 1500's for once. Guess I better keep at it.
