and found this 'rivet-stud', less than 2 meters from the water's edge,
on bare earth scoured by the river Great Ouse with the naked eye.
This was in Bedford, UK.
It looks like it had been riveted onto something else about 5 mm thick.
The 'cross' mark on the thin end is I believe equivalent to the
flattening of a rivet.
The metal looks like copper, although it could have been bronze or brass.
Any ideas on the identity of the inset stone?
It is hard, and not 'plastic-y'.
