My finds from Saturday...#12 id'd as lead powder measure cap

Post by Arch Stanton » Wed Jan 17, 2018 8:13 am

Hi all, haven't posted anything for ages, because I just haven't been able to get out and swing the old history-stick! but here's the results of four hours from my first search of 2018, with a couple of mystery objects that I would love get anyone's ideas on....
1 - 1928 George V half Crown
2-6 - 1866, 1914, 1917, 1918 & 1937 penny's (no.4 possibly shot?)
7&8 - Decimal 1p & 2p
9 - 'London Mail Holiday Club 1913' members token. 'Member No.B4545' on reverse
10 - unknown object - part of toy? Non-ferrous but not lead. Rivet pattern to corner edges
11 - unknown item. Some illegible writing around central 'f' shaped hole
12 - unknown lead item. Hollow, nozzle shape with two small 'D' shaped rings on shoulder edge
13 - Lead soldier, arm in sling, remnants of red paint on jacket. Lettering on back of legs 'Britain' & '20.3.1905'. Believe part of 'Britain's Set 137 - Royal Army Medical Service'.
14 - Buckle, probably not too old.
I was using my trusty Laser Hawkeye, on my pasture permission where the soil is mostly heavy clay and was laying in water in the low parts. I would be grateful for any help at all on the mystery objects, especially no.12, as this is baffling me. It looks for all the world like the nozzle from a lead ointment tube, but why the 'D' rings on either side?
cheers all - Be lucky!

I've done the 'buckle boogie', the 'musket-ball mambo' and even the 'silver shuffle', but sadly still no 'gold dance'. You're really gonna know it when you see it though!

.
11. looks like a reinforcement plate often used with leather. I've seen a very similar style and size used on motorcycle pannier bags and also under the feet of a suitcase. Otherwise when bigger, and I presume thicker, similar plates are used in horse bridle type work.

With an F shaped hole I'd best guess its a reinforcement washer for under a suitcase foot.
