Default Silver charm

Tonight during our clubs seeded hunt, I dug this little silver charm at about 5" with a nail in the hole
I cannot tell what the initials are, but it says sturdy 1/20 12KGF which I think is 12 karat gold filled
There was once an old farmhouse on this site, and I think this could be pretty old.
You never know what you will find...

That is a nice charm. Maybe LCG on the back?

That is actually the front, so maybe initials?
It also looks like the "swoosh" underneath it could be a 16.
Perhaps it was given to a girl on her 16th birthday, never know

It is always interesting what turns up in addition to the seeded targets. And usually these areas were heavily hunted before hand. Cool find!

Thanks, I chose this location because it is public, but there had once been an old farmhouse on the site
