    Louisiana state seal relic

    Hello all,

    I dug this thin brass piece in a site which has given us relics from North and South. The item has the nest from the Louisiana state seal visible (along with the necks of a few Pelican young) below the plow break. Its about the size of a suspender buckle. Back is blank. Im including the CW button for those who don?t know what our state seal looks like. I know what the button is lol.

    Is it possible that it could have looked like this originally?

    That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.

    Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.


    Human decency is not derived from religion. It precedes it.

    it is possible that the nest could be a part of a geometric design but I can see two of the young hatchlings in the nest. Wish this item were more complete, we’d have more clues.

    My old eyes can't see the hatchlings.
