What Is It? September 2016

William Gibson of Littleton, Colorado thought the “what is it” might be a clothes pin and Terry Cook of Fort Morgan, Colorado thought this item might be used to hold a cloak together. Maybe it could be used in those ways. Technically, the item is a tent hook.  It was used in the American Revolution. It was used between 1778 and 1824. It was made in the United States.

We are going to give the subscription to William and Terry anyway because they were close. Congratulations!
