Finds pouch finds

Post by hadri » Thu Oct 11, 2018 5:23 pm

Hi all.I found these items while looking through the scrap finds at the bottom of my detecting pouch.
The fist one is a piece of rectangle metal approx 21mm by16mm and weighs3.3gr,
I don't think it's too old but has BEST METAL stamped into it ,could it be a military dog tag ?.
The second is what I think is part of a silver intaglio ring ,possibly Roman .has tested as silver and is approx 15mm by 9mm partifact .
Any help on these would be great.
Many thanks hadri
