    S.S.C. Co. tag

    Got this tag today in Baltimore City. Not certain what Company used the S.S.C. Co. designation. I've seen an online example of a brass tag with a larger hole and the same company designation but with more modern numbers and letters than this one. That example was purportedly for a mining company. Anyone seen one like this before?

    I do not find S.S.C. Co. in this list.

    Here's a possibility that links this tag to a coal mining company in the United States. I did a search on "Southern States Coal Company" and found this article that appeared in the Nashville Union and American on 28 July 1875. Click image for larger version.

ID:	1669365. Now I don't know that this company actually used the logo "S.S.C. Co", but the link is plausible. How the tag got to Baltimore is another mystery.

    I’ll bet the C was Canning, being in Maryland.

    Thanks Tony. That's likely. Detailing of the 6 and 4 looks old to me.

    Hey Tommy, nothing further on this beauty. You know how it is with detecting, you're usually not the first person to dig one, but this remains a 'head scratcher'.
