Vintage Silver Cartridge Placefinder.
A modern silver place marker, place finder, in the shape of a 12 bore shotgun cartridge. The well crafted and engineered placefinder or butt marker is made by F. A. Anderson and hallmark 1992. The gilt head unscrews to reveal 8 removable numbered pegs within. The numbered pegs are randomly inserted into the cartridge, number side down. Each shooter then takes their turn to draw a peg and the revealed number shows the actual shooting position (butt) that they will use for the first drive. Placefinders were very popular from the 1900's and are making a resurgence today, with many shooters looking out for good antique examples.
