ARC, All that was in reference to the 18th century wig curler, what I had initially intended to be the focus item of the thread, but the coin eclipsed it lol. No one I showed it to had a clue what it was and , prolly last as in I highly doubt I will find another.
Sounds like lots of good targets there. Never owned a Tejon, isn’t it all sound? I find a display fairly useless in a lot of trash, the stuff I hate is all those bits of siding if it’s got aluminum- sound soo good
Gare, it’s about half of an 18th century clay wig curler, London origin, stamped “WB”, sorry about the bad pic. I don’t know how to add a link, but if you search” Boiling, baking and curling 18th century wigs”, it will give you a site where archeologists found similar ones at my Vernon
Toasted, thanks that’s great info- so maybe the lower silver content made it more brittle and apt to break not bend? I dug a half dime once, and sunk my digger straight into the center of it. it didn’t break, came out looking like a miniature taco shell
