Got out with my friend Frank today to hit up some sites up north. Ran into a Black bear (no pictures) as we were shouting & banging our shovels to scare it away. Happened upon a porcupine and back off.

Got a pair of Pres. John Adams cufflinks as well as 2 buttons. The Buckle is silver but my guess it's silver plated. Need to do some research on the cufflinks, been a long day!

That's guy's I'm pretty stoked. Tell me more about the cuff links. I have to say I'm thinking I need to invest in bear spray as I knew it was only a matter of time until I ran into one.

when looking up information about the cuff links, more than one site has said something to the effect of 'less than 10 examples known'. Yours, being complete should be worth quite a bit. It would not surprise me if they were valued at a few thousand dollars. Seems like I remember someone else here posting a set some time back.

Anyone have any leads on info on the cuff links? I'm coming up with nothing, except less than 10 are known but there's got to be more info on them if they are as rare as they say they are.

I reached out to the John Adams homestead site (NPS) to see what they have to say. They must have more detailed information on them.
