Site dates from 1790’s to 1865. Located in Low Country South Carolina. . Descendent still own property. I don’t know if this is a family heirloom. Can anyone read the script? Thanks.

Cool recovery
The script from that era mirrors the tagging that is done today-both are hard to figure out for me.
Neat pendant
Hope the refined eyes will chime in and ID the script.

No, just the pendant, it’s very thin also.
I have a tough time reading those type of script also. Is there any other stamped marks on that item?

Looks like a love token, and judging by the evidence of reading in the 10-11 o'clock area, my guess is that it was made on a large cent
It’s a dedicated piece—only engraved on one side and very thin. Rang up as brass.

Great save on this CW pendant. This piece was probably treasured by its owner. I wonder if you could take this to an engraved if they would be able to I D the script letters for you. This is a very personal piece of History with a story. Congrat's.
