I'm wondering if any of your readers have come across this cipher in their collecting. Although this example is a china cream pitcher, the logo seems to resemble something one would find on a token or medal. Obviously a New England group, but I can't make the initials fit anything sensible…
Season's greetings to all.
Hmmm. Interesting. It's worth a shot - this type of monogram could well be found on a token, medal, or piece of paper money of the era. Does anyone recognize it, or have a theory no what it represents? Thanks.
