I know that it might be outside your expertise, but I have been trying to find out information about a particular leather gorget in my possession. I have received a couple of very informed and helpful ideas from a variety of sources including some from our fellow forum members, but due to your vast array of experience I thought you might also have some idea as to its specific nature. I have been told it might very well be a gorget pattern adapted during the various colonial wars here in America in the mid-1700's as officers serving the English tried to be less conspicuous fighting in the forests of North America, or a piece belonging to a Native American "gorget captain" allied with the British.
Thanks for any ideas!
