Students examine racist artifacts at the Jim Crow Museum, located on the Ferris State University campus in Big Rapids, Michigan.
“Our mission is to promote racial tolerance by helping people understand the historical and contemporary expressions of intolerance.”
I have a “Royal African Company” item dated 1725. It appears to be an oval brass piece that states the company name and a raised coat of arms on the front. The reverse says ” 1725/Royal African Company/Black Labor Supply/
His Majesty’s Tax No./ and then a stamped 70. Could this be authentic, and where could I have it appraised? Thank you for your help. Richard Gheesling
I ALSO HAVE A OVAL BRASS PIECE 1725
