I would stay away from wearing trade silver during the 1750's for New France inhabitants. There is an argument to be made for wearing silver crosses but even something as simple as silver earbobs is quite difficult to document.

Those French guys you see at every reenactment with all that trade silver dripping from every bit of cloth are pure fantasy.

I agree with Michael here and the same goes with non Natives in general along with neck knives,especially the quilled variety.

well i cant say about Minnesota but at Ft William Johnson museum has a display of trade silver that is displayed as 18th century Iroquois.

Now if this is a misrepresentation by the museum ? That interlay possible , that happens all to often

Capt,

I think the question was what kind of silver did the French wear in the mid 18th century. To which most answered, "Not much if at all"

Those brooches are nice but are more likely late in the century.

90% of that stuff in Ft. Johnson is 19th century with that GIANT 1830's pie plate being the prime example
