Hi all. I got permission to a new place Friday by doing a little door knocking. The home was built in 1865. Besides about 25 pennies, 2 of which are Indian head, 00 and 07, I found this awesome printing plate. Not sure if it is of a soldier or a frontiersman. Very cool though.

Keep Swinging!!

A friend of mine thought; "It looks like a gentleman hunter to me with a tweed hunting outfit complete with tie all ready to go fox hunting."

Ink it up and print it on a sheet of paper. Then try to match that up with a picture on the internet
