Another from the unidentified pile.
« on: June 22, 2012, 03:06:04 PM »


Nickel, 54 mm
I read the initials as SR & AB
Friendship Love Justice Truth Est. 1837

All ideas welcomed.

Me neither - I've tried SRFB and SRAB without success. Did wonder whether the S might stand for Scottish though, as a possible starting point.

Re the third initial - I can't convincingly make it into either an F or an A, but don't have any alternative suggestions either.

The ampersand in the middle should help, but of course it doesn't.
