Notes

This is a monochromatic stone often chosen for the Shield shape. This particular stone is not a common Shield shape in that it is shorter and more squared rather than a tapered form. It does have the distinctive subtle barrel at the spine and very thin wings common to this type. New England is written on the stone.
