This was a decorated copper plate that came out of one of Gary’s excursions. While fans want to know what this is, the only way to really find out is by watching the reality TV series. Then, they must wait for them to reveal the identity of the object. This does not stop fans from discussing the objects.

The show revealed it is a metal sheet that is 95% copper and 5% zinc. This means it is a brass object, folded with intricate designs. Laird said he thought it was military, and fans have decided that he might be right. There is one archaeologist fan who watches the show, and he believes it is a gorget.

According to this fan, a gorget is an ornament worn around the neck that was a part of European military uniforms. North American Indigenous warriors also wore them. Many British soldiers gave away gorgets to their allies after the War of 1812. These have been around a lot longer than that and were often a symbol of status.

What does this mean forĀ Curse of Oak Island?

The archaeologist fan said that the decoration was more indigenous than European. Yet, the composition makes it look like it came from Europe, which means it is no older than the 1500s. They also thought that the fact it was folded over meant it was more like ornaments, plates, and things like military badges manufactured in the 1700s.

However, this likely has nothing to do with any treasure. The best it can be is to relate to people who were there before them and possibly lead to their theories of people who might have hidden the treasure. With that said, as long as no treasure is uncovered, it is objects like this that make The Curse of Oak Island so interesting to watch.
