Dug both of these tags in Baltimore, MD at a location that is within a quarter mile of a large tract of land owned by John W. Garrett (1880s map), first president of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad. While I have not seen this particular shape of metal baggage tag before, the rectangular slot at the top is reproduced in most examples I've seen. What makes these two tags unique is that they bear the initials "J.W.G." Could these initials refer back to Garrett? I'm interested to know what others think of these.
