apothecary has 5 divots ( 5 pennyweight ) with a clenched fist stamp mark
the charm has the same 5 dots and a clenched fist hanging from the bottom. so it appears to be in some way related to the apothecary.
any positive ID help would be great, as this one is stumping me.
the clenched fist ( figa ) was used as a good luck symbol and carried by many colonial era settlers. not sure what the symbol with the five dots means in relation to the charm.. but it resembles the 5 pennyweight apothecary .
