A man named Chris Gardner, who was doing a search with a metal detector in Edmonton found an item with a Weyburn origin, and reached out to the Weyburn Review with this photo of the item and this request:
“I dug up this 6cm X 3cm metal tag while metal detecting in an old field in north Edmonton this past summer. I also found a few bits of old horse tack, coins and such.
I’m curious if your staff or readers may be able to help me identify the company on the tag: C. W. & C. Co. Ltd - Weyburn, Sask. I’d also like to know what it’s from.”
Reader Ken Murray, who grew up in Weyburn and now lives in Ottawa, emailed the following explanation for the tag:
If anyone might have an idea about this tag, you can let Greg Nikkel know at the Weyburn Review, or Chris can be contacted by email at Chris.Gardner@bellmedia.ca, or through Facebook Messenger:https://www.facebook.com/chris.c.gardner.3
