Very personal piece of silver
Quote this message in a reply
Had an hour and a half to play before work. Hit my Loyalist field  to see if I could coax a keeper out of it. Found a buckle, a musketball and a nice cut and flattened piece of a silver thimble. It is initialed HK. The loyalist officer died and his wife had a big house built in 1823 on his friends abandoned grant. His wife's initials...HK!  Cool stuff.  Crossed the road to get to my car and had a rather large conductive target right by the car. Pulled the truck and trailer out. Nice little display piece. Thanks again for looking and HH

Thanks guys!  To add even more personal info, those dents you see in it are actually teeth marks!  Someone told me they used gold and silver back then to bite on as a pain distraction....could be!
