I don't post very often anymore unless I find something out of the ordinary. I thought I'd share this find with everyone. Found this today and it was fun searching the Internet trying to identify it. It's a WWI good luck charm "Fumsup" circa 1914. Some versions have "Fumsup" written on chest some don't. Mine is made of silver some are made of gold, even brass. The head would have been touch wood which apparently disintegrated in the ground before I found it. I included a photo of a complete one (not mine). Here are a couple cool links to read about them. Thanks for looking HH
