The old shiny patina on the shield suggests that it may have some considerable age, which would be consistent with the fact that by 1850 most of South-eastern Australia was under European control and nearly all of the Aboriginal groups had been displaced and dispossessed of their land. As a result there is little aboriginal material from the first half of the 19th century from this area to be found.
