    Knight in armor

    Not much to look at or go on. I can tell you the site this was found at has a history that dates to 1811. Dug this at 7 inches and it was a bear to actually find the little guy.

    Thanks. By the way the penny is for size reference.

    That thing is extreamly familiar...

    It's the top of a car emblem... I can not remember which one...

    Maybe.

    Re: Knight in armor

    Jim, you're right. It has similarities to the Dodge emblem.

    Re: Knight in armor

    ME, looks like a charm, or the size of one. What does it appear to be made out of? Definitely a molded item. -Noodle

    Re: Knight in armor

    It's non-magnetic and no rust was on it as you can see.

    Re: Knight in armor

    ME, ah, that didn't help. My son is a metallurgical engineer, but not me. Got a clue what the metal is? Obviously not iron, probably not lead, doubt it's nickle. Does it say sterling? Sorry ... am cranky with hay fever. Noodle

    Re: Knight in armor

    No I'm sorry it doesn't. I think it is probably pot metal. Could be pewter it is heavy enough.

    Re: Knight in armor

    Scrub that thing down so we can tell for sure if it's a battle mask or huge teeth!
    Still think it's a charm of some sort.

    Maybe the emblem from a Willys Knight auto ?

    Re: Knight in armor

    My first thought when I saw it was that is was a pendant - feathers missing from the top - I went to Littleton High School and we were the Crusaders - looks ALOT like our mascot...

    Started having flashbacks...
