    Any ideas?

    Found this at the former site of an old Quarry town. I've pulled many an ornate object out of the earth there but this one I can't identify.

    I believe it may be part of the S & C line that ran back to the Quarry. Actually I'm almost certain. I've found other railroad relics at this site. There is a treeline running where the tracks use to be but the rails have been gone for well over 70 years.

    Not a railroad company. Hardware company.

    Sargent & Co.

    "The Sargent brothers bought full ownership of the New Britain firm in 1857. Seven years later, in 1864, they moved the factory to New Haven to be closer to the sea for shipping purposes and the delivery of raw materials, and incorporated under the laws of Connecticut as SARGENT & Co."

    "By 1914, the SARGENT product catalog listed some 60,000 different items, making it one of the largest hardware manufacturing plants in the United States."

    Yeah... I would say that there just might be a vague hint of similarity there.

    Well done!

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
