Very nice provenance for your TN hewer with its scarce hanger.
I maintain a database of the numbers and have added your 1855. The number series applied to the EM hewers and the officers daggers and ran concurrently. e.g., The nearest numbers to your 1855 that I have recorded are 1853 and 1856, both of which were officer daggers. The lowest number I have recorded is 0030, the highest is 10377. Enjoy your piece of TN history!
Pity it has been stored this way, now a bit salty but still a nice piece of History!
already have this officers number 0284?
Thanks Gerrit: has been prior posted to WAF and details recorded by me. Nice to have a low number!
