An article, by Ed Lenik, that may help show just how long those large brooches have been used by the Lenape was published in the North Jersey Highlander, Vol. 11, No.4 (1975), pp.21-22.  (Used by permission of the author.)

Re: Craftwork and trade items

All the Lenape Indian craftwork and trade items in my collection--including those shown in this topic--have been donated to the Monmouth County Historical Association Museum, 70 Court Street, Freehold, New Jersey, in whose sole possession and ownership they now rest.  This will allow the public a much greater opportunity to view these things, in person, at that institution, during its various exhibitions and among its collections.
