Many 19th century social conventions seem at odds with current practices. Such is the manner of notating gifts or presentations. The first person of interest in today's world is the recipient, while the second one is the giver; the order is "to" and "from."

That custom is evidenced by the inscription on this larg... Click for details

Coin Silver Tspn, Thomas. A. Boullt of Hagerstown, MD
