  1. Dumb question... these are 18th Century Silver Cufflinks right?

    Thank you for the info! Out of boredom I looked up some British Naval Officers to see for a PB. Surprisingly one did come up! A Peregrine Bertie. I suppose odds are small, but there's always a chance. This was taken from wikipedia: Captain Peregrine Francis Bertie (13 March 1741 โ€“ 20...
  2. Dumb question... these are 18th Century Silver Cufflinks right?

    Not a detecting find, but a recent purchase. I knew they seemed large when I purchased them, but getting them in hand they're monstrously large. In the one image, I have a U.S. nickel under what I generally think of as a traditional size set. These are just about double that. Are these just...
  3. Found my first Spanish Silver (half reale, I think)๐Ÿ˜€

    nice half real! (there's no e on the end, otherwise you'd have to pronounce it "half real-ay")
  4. Age of these silver pieces?

    Thank you for bumping the thread at least
  5. Age of these silver pieces?

    I bought both of these a little while ago. They appear to have some age to them, but no idea what timeframe we're looking at. They're silver (I don't recall if they're coin or sterling). There are no hallmarks of any kind anywhere on these. Does anyone recognize the country of origin, and...
  6. Is this 1805 Sheffield Sterling?

    It comes in at 19.8 troy ounces total. Some of the elements are a bit confusing... the handle seems like it'd be light, the top part of the lid (black knob) may have been replaced?
  7. Is this 1805 Sheffield Sterling?

    NOT A DETECTING FIND, BUT SOMETHING THAT CAME THROUGH THE SHOP TODAY. I believe it's 1805 Sheffield. Is this correct? Thanks for any input!
  8. 70 acre farm field - Spanish Silver

    Nice find! And thank you for putting my OCD at ease by spelling it correctly as "Real."
  9. โœ… SOLVED Sterling Saddle with Johnnie Walkers Boston stamp. What is it?

    Thank you DCMatt, it definitely looks like a bolo tie slide.
  10. โœ… SOLVED Sterling Saddle with Johnnie Walkers Boston stamp. What is it?

    Found this yesterday at a local beach. Can anyone determine what it was used for? Someone suggested a brooch where the back fell off? I tried looking up Johnnie Walkers Boston, but the Johnnie Walker liquor brand dominated the search. Does anyone recognize the maker? Thanks for any help!
  11. Johnnie Walkers Boston Sterling Saddle. What was it used for?

    Thanks for the input. I will post on the What's It forum. It's a decent size. Here is a new pic with it next to two US quarters.
  12. Johnnie Walkers Boston Sterling Saddle. What was it used for?

    Got out to a small local lake beach today with the 17" coil on the CTX. I've hit this beach a million times but never with the 17". Went for the deep targets and this one sure was deep - not perfectly sure but could have been upwards of 15" and started with the ever so slightest chirp...
  13. Need help with hallmarks. Age and solid sterling silver? British?

    Thank you Red-Coat! That's some great information and exactly what I was looking for. Thank you again!
  14. Need help with hallmarks. Age and solid sterling silver? British?

    Not a detecting find but needed help identifying this piece and hallmarks. It looks like London, but I don't recognize the other marks. Can anyone identify the marks and age of this piece? Thanks for any help you can provide.
  15. Early Standing Liberty Quarter

    Looks like it was rubbed immediately after being found.
  16. Handful of coppers..Farthing? Catell?

    The top one looks like a William III which puts it 1690s to very early 1700s!
  17. Can you help me put an age to these gold cufflinks?

    Thanks guys, the engraving didn't look quite colonial, so sometime in the later 1800s would make sense. Thank you!
  18. Can you help me put an age to these gold cufflinks?

    These were bought, not a detector find. They appear to be most likely sometime in the 1800s, but didn't know if anyone could help pinpoint a more precise date. They are SMALL! Both sets can fit on top of a US dime. Weight is 1.14 or so grams for both of them combined. Gold content is...
