This silver gorget is in the shape of a crescent moon and meant to be worn around the neck. Engraved at the center is the profile of a boar. There are buttons near each point, and along the edges are lines that resemble molding. Europeans used silver items like this one along with cloth, weapons, pots, kettles, and other European goods to trade with American Indians in the Great Lakes region, including the Miami, for food, skins, and furs.
