    I've been Searching for information on this for years, even reached out to antique dealers. The only information I've been able to acquire is that until recently, only parts of this fob have been found on civil war dig sites. The actual age is unknown. I have seen similar ones to this but nothing identical to this one. Any information on this would be great.

      Hello Moosman,

      Can you type what is written in each section? The content may hold a clue.

      One of the sections says "Here's to our wives and sweethearts. May they never meet. ". This is a Royal Navy toast. I'll add the rest shortly.

      Didn't we have something like this awhile back ?
    4. SpiritBear, 5 years ago
      Blunderbuss, correct: it was up recently with a long, long amount of text on the fob and a Large Cent.

      So SB, I'm not losing it, except in Izenglish's mind ? Know how to locate that poste, or do we wait & see if they step forward ? I want a re-cap of it now.

      I'd have hit Like on it thus shortening my search, had the pics been better (at first I thought, from the pics, that the coin was a dug V-nickel, LOL).
      Going through several pages of posts, I realised our friend who has posted this one is why the old one was brought up again recently: he helpfully commented to the poster.
      Here it is, if this is the one I think you mean:

      SB, "you dun good!". I'm a bit confused (happens often). Moose commented on the older poste "yesterday". You came up with the old poste today (?) obviously. I'm at a loss as to what is going on. SB, do you know ?

      Isn't that the post you meant?
      Moose has posted only one item at this date.

      The one posted a year ago was from ChrisAxe. Moose posts his yesterday & made a reply on ChrisAxe yesterday & doesn't share that info.(?). I'm confused, but as said, that happens often.
