New England or Canada. Circular 5/8” diameter, with rounded face and flat back. Original cross pin bent from having been seated in a, leather garment. These were made by American and Canadian silversmiths during slow times and sold to woodsmen and trappers who traded them to Indians for furs, food and other commodities. Among the most colorful of the smiths was Robert Cruickshank of Montreal whose marked works sell in the five figures.
