There was an old house torn down near our property and I've found many old sad irons, car parts, mason jars, milk bottles, silver coins, etc. So I went back last week to see what I've missed and found this strange thing. Good thing I brought it back home! My husband took it to work and has his arrowhead friend tell us what it was... a Native American gorget! I had to do some research and sure enough! Cool :cool:

Great find! I also have found one or should I say half of one as it was broken at the hole. My son has a small tear drop one that my dad found on the shore of Lake Champlain on the Vermont side. I was there when he found it and gave it to him. It is red in color and has single hole and is in perfect condition. I love looking for indian artifacts and when you find something it really is amazing.

I've found a few broken ones too, but never a whole one. That's a really nice example. Thanks for sharing it with us.
