I was fortunate to find this lil jewel years ago in a field of a long forgotten homesite. Didn't know it until years later how precious it exactly is. Samuel and Robert Best were two brothers that are considered not only some of the earliest but as the name says best silversmiths in the territory. They partnered only twice, once in 1812 and again 1817-1818. It's awesome having not just an early but local (45 mins away) piece of history!!!
