    Nothing but a lousy dog tag!

    A little road trip with Don yielded only one silver but I did manage an 1883 dog tag!!

    Oops, sideways again! Got to give something for Daddy Digger to complain about LOL! Anyways maybe the moderator can fix it for me.
    Always hoped I could find one of these from the 1800s but never expected to get number 13! Is that bad luck so close to Halloween?

    Sorry I broke my phone and Iím learning how to use a new one. Pictures will be better next time. Got what looks like a gilded pewter button, is your first license, and another pewter pendant that I have not identified yet. What a fun day!

    Nice finds. Love that tag! Guessing #13 would have only been unlucky if the dog were still attached! LOL

    You noticed that too?!! Perhaps they are suppose to be spikes as it's a big mean looking dog on that tag!! Love to know the artist who designed it.

    I would love to find a dog tag from the 1800's. Those are very rare and highly sought after by dog tag collectors. Great find!
