Antique Victorian Funeral Coffin Plate Set of Three by aldetha. MC: I've seen many a picture of these items; they were once attached to coffins. My concern is how they came to be in peoples' possession - were they talken off the coffins before burial (unlikely - they were expensove and were put ON the coffins for future identification) - or were they dug up and stolen? Either way, I don't want the bad juju that accompanies them,
People who don't read history books are unaware that a huge number of "cowboys" driving herds to the railheads in Kansas were Indians. And many don't know that some of "Indians" who raided the drives for beef in the the "nations" were runaway slaves and ex-slaves adopted into the tribes in the Oklahoma territory. Western movies don't tell you that.
