Found this fragment of a locket while detecting around a 1860's (or possibly earlier) derelict house. The house had been occupied as a summer residence up until recent years. Also found some 1940's through 1960's coins, a couple old pocket watch inner parts, complete parts of a 1892 patented harmonica, and some random harmonica reeds at the site.
The locket appears to be made of copper or brass.
Can anyone give an 'educated' guess of its age?
Thanks and Happy New Year!
