    Pres. John Adams & Other Goodies!

    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 backed 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!

    Thanks Drew! As soon as I saw the image I immediately thought of him. 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.

    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.

    It looked like it was dead but then I saw it breathing and looking at me, so I backed off not wanting it to get it upset, LOL.
