Friendship or Hands Ring

This is a copy of an original ring from Fort Niagara.  The Hands ring  (overlooked by many reenactors) has been found at several 1750-1850 sites around the country.  In my area, the sites at Ft. Michilimachinac and the Fletcher Site (Saginaw, Michigan) have several in their collections.  Other sites in Western New York, Alabama and Wisconsin also have uncovered many of these rings.
