    Hello All!

    This is my first time here, what a wonderful forum!
    My name is tia and I would sure appreciate some input from you guys on something I've acquired.

    It's a figural ivory toothpick of George Washington. The puzzling thing is, it's dated 1770 which is before he was president. Is there anything during that time period that you think might have some connection to this piece?

    I have a picture, but I don't seem to have enough posts to put it up. Will post them at a later datel

    thanks, tia

    Welcome.


    But I think you've accidentally come to the wrong website and you intended to go HERE.


    Don't worry...it happens ALL the time.
