Site: 18CV60 Angelica Knoll

Context: N/A (See Site Summary)

Context Date Range: c. 1650-1770

Metal: Silver alloy, with some copper content

Maker’s Mark: None

Description: Undecorated bodkin with one long eye and a small hole at one end. It was probably rendered useless by the break on the hole at the end and a severe bend.

Inscription: “MB”; Historical documents have yet to reveal anyone associated with Angelica Knoll who might have these initials, but since the area was a gathering place for Quaker settlers, it may well have been lost by a visitor rather than a member of the Johns family who lived at the site.
