    I had this posted but i made a mistake and thought i took everything out but it still got deleted Well this is a neat Item I think it is from the Mill and it was removed from when in the 1950's they redid the fort (Sutter's Mill) into a museum.

    All he wanted to do back then was open a Mill but gold was discovered and that ruined everything perhaps if his partner kept his mouth shut he would of made it. Just think his big mouth partner wound up being poor and a drunk.

    This is a neat piece of History

      LOL - In a nutshell... Sutter's Mill, California. Sutter & James Marshall had a mill at Coloma, CA, but found a gold instead. An Assayer in SF finked before Sutter was ready to tell, and all was ruined. And thus the Great California GOld Rush began, and Sutter, Marshall & California was never the same.

      You see Gold destroyed their life's Dream unfortunately. Actually that word as 2 meaning and thats funny in other case's but in Marshall's it was Bad His partner brought that Nugget to the Salon and that was the End of the Lumber dream. un-FORTUNE-it lee ha ha. But in your opinion do you think this has a Value beside a Historical value

      Not sure about value. What is on the back of the tag? A California gold rush collector would probably love it. I have doorknobs like that on my servicep porch door and my house was built in 1926. What is that date on the tag in upper left? 1956 or 1936? The handwriting looks to be old style - like whoever wrote it in the 50s was older than the 50s, but it looks like Sharpie-type pen.

      It's kinda hard to prove is ACTUALLY came from Sutter's fort, but for the tag. I mean - I believe it did. But there are sceptics out there who want solid provenance.

      Don't want to burst any bubbles, but doubt it is older than 1910.
      ClassicC, my email is on my profile. Wasn't that easy ? LOL!

      BlunderBuss2 & Celien Here's a website that dates the know to the 1840 it's black with a reddish type clay base. These Knobs have been around for over 200 years and is a cheap basic knob Victorian Black Enamel Door Knob. Or also Known as the black mineral clay door knobs But it is from the early - mid 1800 so no bubble busted their These are a very common also the id'ing factor is that it has a rim on the knob i think they are called rim-lock knobs why i don't know. But the Knob really isn't a value item it's just the History and i like gold rush items so its histrionically valued item for me and it's NFS

      Why did you set a rough-edged sharper object on a 1700s paper?
    9. ClassicCannons ClassicCannons, 5 years ago
      Spirit The paper is from 1956 according to the date top med left corner when it was removed when the army corp made it in to a museum that may not be the year it opened thoo and just like the government they had to get the newly invented marker look her

      They come in a variety of tip sizes (ultra fine to wide), shapes (chisel point, bullet tip, ... The permanent marker was invented in 1952 by Sidney Rosenthal. ... surfaces such as a whiteboard as dry erase markers also contain a non-polar solvent.
