This cuff link stud was recovered during excavations in 1973 by the Kansas State Teacher's College (now Emporia State University) archeological field school at the Baker Store in Morris County. The cuff link, decorated with ruby colored glass, was slightly damaged during the fire. The Baker store and nearby house were situated along the Santa Fe trail. The owner, A. I. Baker, was murdered in 1862 by "Bloody Bill" Anderson and his cohorts, who also burned the store and house.

Date: 1862
