Experts at a Boston museum opened up a 1795 time capsule buried by Sam Adams and Paul Revere. Paul was a fine silversmith and engraver and it stands to reason that if he buried this time capsule that included an engraved silver plate, he's the one who engraved it.
I had read that Paul Revere was an Engraver, but haven't read much about his work. Haven't seen photos of much of his work, either, which obviously would have to recovered and on display somewhere. Maybe someone's undertaken the effort to post his work somewhere, after trying to find same?
That is just some cool stuff. I love reading and learning all of these things anew. I got passing grades in school but didn't dig further than the few paragraphs we were taught on various history topics. Now I read an hour a day on many topics in more depth like this....
From the inscription, it appears he was the Grand Master of Masons in Massachusetts, the term Most Worshipful is reserved for the presiding Grand Master. Right Worshipful is usually used for subordinate officers of the Grand Line. (At least that's the way it was done when I was active in Maryland)
I'm always in awe with objects like this. The Grand Lodge of Maryland has a museum housing significant Maryland objects. They have some really interesting pieces such as a desk used by George Washington and one of his Masonic aprons.
